Overview

With his criminal biological father back in jail, Joel thinks all his troubles are behind him. He’s looking forward to the future with his biker foster dad, Dev. But Joel runs into trouble when he and his best friend, Mei, discover that the island lighthouse is haunted.

Strange noises in the night, unexplained footprints– Joel reckons there’s got to be a logical explanation. But he soon realises that solving the mystery will be far more terrifying and dangerous than a ghost.
