Bryson, a 13-year-old from Georgia, was hospitalized by doctors who didn't believe he had psychic abilities - he was released after they could find no signs of mental illness and since then he has been living in fear of exposing his gifts. Colton, also 13-years-old, wants nothing more than for his dad to believe in his intuitive skills. Together they join Psychic/Medium Chris Fleming and therapist Edy Nathan on a paranormal investigation of a century old opera house with many reported spirit sightings. Using a variety of paranormal investigating tools as well as their psychic abilities, the kids gather enough evidence to begin convincing Colton's dad that what he sees is real and for Bryson, to get the validation that he desperately seeks.
