It’s Christmastime in London, and mortality, not merriment, is on everyone's minds as a serial killer is terrorizing the British capital. Elaine, however, has been dealing with life and death matters on a more personal scale. While going through the healing process from a life-saving hysterectomy, she becomes fascinated with death. Elaine's morbid obsession leads her to an old church being demolished and a mysterious man who shares her dark curiosity.
