Pendant ce temps, sa fille, Layla, qu'elle délaisse trop souvent, se met en tête de débusquer des pervers sur Internet avec sa meilleure amie.

    1931, Chicago. Traqué par la police, Harper Curtis, un marginal violent, se réfugie dans une maison abandonnée. À l'intérieur, il a une vision : des visages de femmes, auréolés de lumière. Il comprend qu'il doit les trouver... et les tuer. Dans sa transe, Harper découvre que grâce à cette demeure, il peut voyager dans le temps. Débute alors sa croisade meurtrière à travers le XXème siècle : années 1950, 1970, 1990... D'une décennie à l'autre, il sème la mort sur son passage, laissant en guise de signature des indices anachroniques sur le corps de ses victimes.
