Teresa exhibited extraordinary vocal talent since she was a child. Upon discovering her gift, Teresa's mother encouraged her to study classical music to hone her career as a soprano opera singer. Teresa studied classical geniuses such as Beethoven, Bach, Handel, and Mozart and trained with some of the industry's best musical instructors. By the time she was a young adult, Teresa was selling out opera houses worldwide and bracing the covers of the world's most prominent magazines. Now, in her thirties, Teresa finds herself torn between continuing her wildly successful opera career and settling down with her fiancé, Matthew, to start a family.

While on a recent tour in Milan, Italy, stress and inadequate sleep from performing in one city after the other cause Teresa to hallucinate. After several nightmares about an obsessed, mysterious stranger, she starts to lose her grip on reality. Upon returning home to the U.S., she meets a man named Ali, who is similar to the stranger from her dreams. They bump into each other on numerous occasions, and these meetings aren't coincidences. Soon after these encounters, Teresa finds herself in a tug-of-war between Ali, who wants her to be his lover, and a cult of secret necromancers he belongs to who wants her out of the picture.

Is Teresa's life in danger from members a mysterious cult who are pursuing her; or, has mild psychosis brought on by the pressures of her demanding career caused Teresa to imagine everything about the enigmatic Ali?
