Chrissie and Gillian are students who take up lodgings in an ancient Victorian boarding house. Despite their delight with their new room and the low rent, the other occupants of the house are so peculiar that within days Chrissie is already talking of leaving. Gillian insists she stays, however, and she does - in spite of the curious habits of the residents and the strange fact that none of them ever seem to leave the house. When a man arrives at the door searching for his missing daughter, Chrissie suspects foul play but is unable to prove anything. The following day, she is forced to spend the night away against her better instincts, and Gillian inevitably comes face to face with the mysterious occupant at the top of the stairs...
