Janet, a troubled teenager attending a boarding school, suffers from persistent nightmares. In these dreams, she sees her mother, who is actually locked in an insane asylum, haunting her. The other students are disturbed by her nighttime disturbances, leading the headmistress to send her home. Accompanied by Miss Mary Lewis, one of her teachers, Janet arrives at High Towers, an English countryside estate. Her guardian and lawyer, Henry Baxter, is absent, and the household staff welcomes her. Janet is introduced to Grace Maddox, her new companion, unaware that Grace is a nurse. Janet’s mother had gone insane and murdered her father years ago, and Janet herself was hospitalized. As the nightmares persist, Janet believes they are real.
