After the apparent suicide of her father-figure boss, Lauren Kyte hardly has time to mourn before she is caught in a web of political intrigue and black market weapons trading left behind by his death. When a strange force comes to her rescue after a seemingly random assault, Mulder and Scully investigate the possibility that she may have a powerful but supernatural protector. Scully and Mulder themselves experience the power of this otherworldly force when they question the distraught Lauren, and their car is hurled down a street like a toy. At the same time, Lauren is beginning to suspect that her boss' death was anything but suicide. Her fears are borne out when she herself becomes the target of a terrorist attack, and Mulder witnesses a ghost coming to her defense. To forestall the anger of the dead, Mulder and Lauren must uncover the secret that led to her boss's untimely death.
