While on one of his charity trips, he agrees to take responsibility for a young American woman suffering from amnesia after a typhoon ravaged the Philippines. Deshi believed providing food and comfort to this young woman while she recovers would be the extent of his involvement. He is so wrong.

Relying on the shelter priest’s opinion, she accepts Deshi’s offer to return to Hong Kong, to recover. She is in her early twenties, petite and gentle prompting Deshi to ‘name’ her Annie. However, she is tortured by nightmares which begin to reveal a forgotten danger.
