New England ... 1927 - William Stanton is visited by a friend from his childhood, Edgar Wycherley, who hands him a strange pyramid shaped object and begs him not to show it to anyone, not even him if he asks for it. As William delves into the mysteries of this object and the reasons why his friend gave it to him, he discovers that Edgar was somehow involved in the occult and that the entire world may be at risk.
