Mags had been estranged from her brother Abe at the time of his accident. Their separation wasn’t due to having had a falling out; it was more that their lives had moved in very different directions. Confident Mags had followed her legal career to the U.S. and Abe, as Mags found out, had been content in his carer’s job and in creating a quieter life for himself that was far away from the memories of their horrific childhood. Mags does not accept that Abe tried to commit suicide by pitching himself off the building’s stairs. He had a fiancé, colleagues, and purpose. Moving into the atmospheric church complex herself, Mags extends her stay and slowly begins to find out who her brother had really been.
