A young governess journeys to a lonely English manor house to care for two recently orphaned children. But she is not their first governess. Her predecessor drowned herself when she became pregnant by the sadistic valet, who was also found dead soon after, under mysterious circumstances. Now the new governess has begun to see these specters haunting the children – but are they really? Based on the classic, suspenseful and provocative tale by Henry James, Hatcher’s adaptation is a haunting and psychologically penetrating drama.
