Synopsis: Creatively gifted with a resilient spirit, college student Chloe Moray (Nathalia Ramos) finds solace from a difficult childhood in her art.  But when a terrifying dream begins to recur night after night, Chloe starts to believe that it might be a suppressed memory and that she may have witnessed a horrific crime as a little girl.  Her search to find the answers forces Chloe to confront her own past traumas, while at the same time, helps her unlock a mystery that would solve a decade old cold case.  But when the authorities don’t believe her, Chloe’s new-found hope is challenged in this powerful story of faith, triumph and healing.
