His biggest wish was to control his dreams.
His biggest regret came when he could...

After the 10-year memorial of his dad’s disappearance behind enemy lines, 17-year-old Jack Traeger discovers his dad’s journal.
From the journal, Jack learns that his dad tried lucid dream therapy to reduce the symptoms of PTSD—a secret Jack’s alcoholic mother kept from him for reasons unknown.

Yearning for a connection with his father, he studies the journal and practices lucid dreaming in secret. But as he masters the art, he uncovers the terrifying reason behind his mother's secrecy:
Some things aren’t meant to be controlled.

Jack's life unravels as the border between dreams and reality dissolves. His paranoia is fueled by a mysterious black van outside their home, and shortly after, a body is discovered, with fingers pointing toward Jack. 
Who do you trust when you don’t trust yourself? 

Will Jack be able to prove his innocence? Or will he mysteriously disappear, just like his father?

Beneath the scars of a painful past, Earth's destiny hangs in the balance...


When a demonic presence starts haunting the Scott residence, it triggers a cascade of traumatic events, which leads to the youngest boy, Justin Scott, ending up in a dilapidated care facility in Greenville, SC.


Here, Justin forges new friendships with two equally scarred children and finds temporary solace from his pain…until the shadows stir once more. Unspeakable horror unfolds, and the chilling events that transpire in the dark leave those lucky enough to survive the onslaught scarred for life.


Thirty-three years later, a strikingly similar paranormal event draws Justin into an unsettling investigation. He unearths a grim truth behind the haunting shadow that stretches back to 8,212 BC—a truth that now threatens every soul on Earth.


Can Justin connect with his tragic past to uncover the answers in time, or will he, like all of humanity, succumb to the relentless growing power of the insidious shadow?
