Billie is forced to leave behind the only home she's ever known when her mother decides they should move to a new house in a small town. Musty furniture and odd belongings fill the old, dilapidated building, the ghostly remains of its previous tenants - including two small glass figures, of a boy and a girl. The neighbours and local community are hiding something, Billie can tell - a secret about the house, a secret of it's past. Then Billie notices that the glass figures have moved, and soon after she finds a message scrawled in childish writing across a magazine: 'Go away.' When a tiny handprint appears on a dusty table, the handprint of a small child, Billie is certain that they are being haunted. But her mother thinks Billie is making it up. Desperate, and with the help of her new friend, Aladdin, Billie starts to uncover the house's family history, leading her closer to the chilling truth.
