Tagline: You won't snap out of it.

Plot: Hypnotherapist Doctor Michael Strother has a dangerous gift: he has flashes of visions from his patients' minds. Whilst trying to help Detective Janet Losey give up smoking, he sees in her mind a young girl floating below the surface of a stream. Losey is working on a case where a young girl, Heather, has disappeared. When she is found several days later, she has been struck dumb by whatever trauma she has endured. The only clue could lie in the mysterious markings on her arms.

Orthodox police investigation has failed so far, and so Losey enlists Michael's help, hoping that he can coax the girl to speak. When she does, she utters gibberish, which Michael eventually realizes is some kind of incantation.

At home, Michael's pregnant wife, Clara, warns her husband not to become involved. Michael and Clara, with daughter Martha, have left their home in America after Michael's hypnosis of a young swimmer led to the boy's death. Michael is haunted by guilt, and suffers insomnia.

Via the internet, Losey contacts Elliot, owner of a bizarre game shop. His knowledge of arcane religions leads him to recognize that the words spoken and the symbols on Heather's arms are associated with ancient liturgies. Elliot recommends that they read the work of Professor Catherine Lebourg.
