The story follows a mute twelve-year-old, Dylan Jacobs, as he discovers a
mysterious book of spells inside his new apartment. Grieving the loss of
his mother, and feeling isolated from everyone except for his father, Dylan
performs a ritual that promises to deliver his heart's desire: to have a
voice. But he soon discovers that every gift has a toll when a sinister
djinn arrives to collect his soul. Now trapped in his new home with nowhere
to hide, Dylan must find a way to survive until the stroke of midnight or
pay the ultimate price.
