When orphans Flora and Miles are appointed a new governess it seems they will finally be afforded the love and care their innocence deserves. But scarcely has the young lady arrived when stories begin to surface of what happened before, of the death of her predecessor, and of the malevolent Peter Quint. Gradually the young governess finds herself in the grip of great fears as she hears footsteps in the hallways, sees figures at a distance, and begins to believe the children are aware of far more than they show. Bly is full of the ghosts of its past, but are they simply memories of tragedy or something far more sinister? Henry James's tale of ghosts and obsession is brought to life by six final year students from The St Michael Steiner School.
