Charming, curmudgeonly Harry Price cannot quite make up his mind about the existence - or otherwise - of ghosts. Teetering between belief and scepticism, he sets out to scientifically investigate paranormal activity with Sarah Grey, his personal assistant. Mediums, preying on the susceptibilities of the grieving families of the Great War dead, are de-bunked while ectoplasm is found to be cheesecloth. But then the pair are called to haunted Borley Rectory. Local legend cite headless coachmen and a spectral nun as the source of terror, but the house itself seems just as frightening. Price, his reputation at stake, and Grey, with issues of her own, set out to find the truth in this deft, spooky psychological drama based on a true story.
