In emergent Singapore, a celebrity couple, Spiros and Ophelia fell in love and got married. Their life was idyllic until the submerged and hitherto, unknown family legacy of Ophelia became manifest. A dark stain of the occult flows in her veins in spite of herself. As the dark specter attaches itself to her, the nightmare spirals out of control, and requires all the audacity and shrewdness of the Qin eldership to outwit the dark entity. This, they do after a harrowing standoff with terror itself. Victory is achieved ultimately but not cheaply. Ophelia doesn’t escape unscathed. Neither did their happy marriage. The story at the end probes and questions the premise we have about life set purely in modern, rational terms. In spite of our knowledge of things in this universe, many more things remain a mystery and can bring disaster upon our heads unsuspectingly. This dramatised account(written in a more sober and realistic tone of this genre) is based on a true experience and incident, in this remarkable, exuberant island of Singapore; and is set at a time before she became a modern, financial power-house she's today.
