PlotEdit

Jordan and Aileen moved to a very old house. Unknown by Aileen, Jordan cheated with Monica but Jordan doesn't love her. One night, while Monica tries to kiss Jordan, Jordan accidentally kills Monica and buries her in a house where they just moved in. Now, Monica is trying to get justice to her unlawful homicide incident. While trying to do this, Monica tries to get revenge by haunting the whole family. Their daughter, Angel, is being haunted by Monica whilst having a disease and when Jordan and Aileen saw it, they immediately rushed her to the hospital. While Angel is healing, Monica came back to see her and took her. While Monica is still trying to haunt the family, she took care of Angel and a few years passed by when Jordan and Aileen found her again. Angel doesn't remember her real mother and father so she writes bad things about them. After Angel saw the truth, Monica became very angry and tries to capture her. Meanwhile, Aileen and the police are trying to investigate about Monica. When they found out that Jordan was the killer, they immediately tried to arrest Jordan but Jordan fights back and gets shot. Meanwhile, Monica successfully captures Angel and Jordan also didn't notice very soon that he is already dead after he got shot. Angel falls to the ground but is saved by her dead grandma. Monica also got justice and is now in peace. After another incident, Angel celebrates her birthday.
