  • In Virginia, on the crime scene in the brutally murdered Douglas' basement, the Forensics crew find the body of an almost intact, exceptionally preserved, young woman in her mid to late 20s. Furthermore, equally puzzling is also the fact that even though the house of the loving couple is riddled with evidence of mayhem, still, the cause of her death is not apparent. With the Press on his back, urging him for answers, Sheriff Sheldon seeks for help in the coroners Tommy Tilden and his son Austin, assigning them with the emergency autopsy of this beautiful, yet, enigmatic Jane Doe with the grey, cloudy eyes. In the hope that this will be just another easy case, Austin stays to help his father during the night, but then again, the peat under her fingernails, paired with her severed tongue and shattered joints and on top of that, the clear signs of vaginal trauma, strongly imply that this will not be an ordinary night. After tying a little bell on her toe, a remnant of old times when it was hard to distinguish coma from death, the two coroners begin to work, only to plunge themselves deeper and deeper into a world of strange occurrences and inexplicable findings. And then, the bell rang.
