Fear and terror grip a small Southern town when a cheerleader goes missing. Ginny Westbrook, a budding journalist, seeks out the killer even as she searches for her own identity. Digging too deeply and stumbling upon a string of missing girls, she clashes with a serial killer who harbors a hate of interracial relationships and has a passion for nursery rhymes. Are the strange occurrences those of the occult or just coincidence? Or could it be an unknown mother, an earlier victim, back from the grave to save her daughter from a similar fate.
