Plot: Tim and Kaylie were merely teenagers when both of their parents were brutally murdered. Convicted of the killings and sentenced to protective custody, Tim serves his time while Kaylie drifts into a deep despair. Years later, a newly free Tim does his best to lay the past to rest, while Kaylie is certain that her brother was innocent all along — and that the antique mirror their parents used to own holds the answer to her darkest questions.
