Photographer Charles Castle is numbed by grief after the tragic death of his beautiful bride. He goes off to war, working in the trenches as a photographer, untouched by the horrors he sees, oblivious to the dangers around him.
After the war, the whole nation is grieving for their dead, and many turn to spiritualists for consolation. Frozen and resentful in his own grief, Castle takes pleasure in discrediting the many photographic fraudsters who claim evidence of life beyond the grave.
When a mysterious woman shows him photographs with images that he can neither discredit nor explain, he is drawn into a web of passion, romance and violence. Castle catches a tantalising glimpse of a world beyond and pursues it, prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice to be reunited with the one woman he loves.
