The plot centers around four social media influencers who embark on a seemingly entertaining challenge to conduct live-streamed séances from haunted locations, aiming to win a substantial cash prize and global recognition. What begins as a playful venture into horror cosplay rapidly descends into a terrifying ordeal, as they encounter genuine paranormal activity and unravel a mystery that hits perilously close to home. The stakes are amplified when a ghost, believed to be their deceased friend, begins to haunt them, and they must confront the horrifying possibility that the murderer could be among them.
