Miles from friends and neighbours, and having ambitious and busy parents, Rhiannon must make her own life. A friend from the past visits briefly; there is a superficial e-mail exchange with a local girl, but by and large, Rhiannon is alone. Which is probably why parents Malcolm and Jen put their only child's increasingly wayward stories of unexplained noises and sightings down to a lack of stimulation and a consequently overactive imagination.
Chris has been asked to house-sit, and is while the Sullivan's take their daughter Rhiannon away for a break. Rhiannon has been severely psychologically affected by strange supernatural happenings at Ty Pryderi, however, her parents think it is just teenage angst.
