After a family tragedy, Emily, Navin, and their mother move to an old ancestral home to start a new life. On the family's very first night in the mysterious house, a strange noise lures them into the basement where Em and Navin witness their mom's kidnapping by a humongous, tentacled creature who drags her down behind the basement door. The kids give chase down a twisty spiral stairway and find themselves in a world filled with shadowy enemies and unlikely friends.
