WHEN A LITTLE BOY'S LIFE IS THREATENED BY HIS SUPERSTITIOUS GRANDMOTHER, MULDER MUST SOLVE AN OLD-WORLD RIDDLE TO SAVE THE BOY'S LIFE -- AND SCULLY'S.
After a toddler dies on the railroad tracks at a local fair, Mulder suspects a supernatural force at work in the boy's family. To protect the surviving son, he and Scully probe a family with old-world roots and a grandmother with old-world superstitions. Scully suspects a psychological disorder, but Mulder is convinced by poltergeist-type activity that some sort of paranormal activity is taking place. When evil strikes at the family twice more, they discover a surprising family secret about the dead, a secret that threatens the living. Mulder must enlist the help of a band of old men, the Calusari, to exorcise a demon spirit.
