When Emma, a young English journalist, is required to babysit in a dark country house on the longest night of the year - the winter solstice, December 21 - she must confront both her fear of the dark and her unresolved grief for her much-loved late great-aunt Sophie. Where will she find the courage she needs to avoid risking an even greater loss?
