About the Project
A scientist who left his daughter is researching phenomena of life after death and conducts a risky experiment supposed to prove afterlife existence. The experiment itself is based on real events – a test person has to come out of his body, get into the room next to him and remember pre-readied plates with symbols, so after coming back he'd say what he saw while being out. In reality, the scientist not only met his daughter but also faced a ghost of one of his previous test persons, who was trying to obsess the murderer's body while looking for vengeance. Would the scientist find a way back into his body?
