The Last Christmas
FOUR FAMILY MEMBERS RECEIVE A CRYPTIC INVITATION
TO RETURN TO THE ANCIENT SCOTTISH CASTLE THAT IS THEIR BIRTHPLACE FOR A LAST CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION.
SOON AFTER THEY ARRIVE, THEY REALIZE NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS.
A PROTECTIVE GHOST WARNS THEM OF A CURSE, THE MATRIARCH OF THE FAMILY PROVIDES MYSTERIOUS CLUES TO A TREASURE, AND THEY MUST DECIPHER THE SECRET OR LOSE EVERYTHING – INCLUDING THEIR ANCESTRAL FAMILY -- IN JUST SIX MORE DAYS. Four adult children of Benevolence Dayne who are different in every way receive an all-expenses-paid invitation to return to Torcall Castle in a remote part of northwest Scotland. Benevolence has never been close to any of them, but each comes home for a different reason. A set of inexplicable clues leads the Daynes on a Christmas hunt for an old clock and treasure that dates back to the battle for Scottish independence at Culloden. The phantoms in the castle want to help, but an ancient curse will bring down the Dayne clan and its ancestral home if they are unsuccessful. They have until six p.m. on Boxing Day – December 26th. Can they decipher the puzzle and save everything by then, or will their failure cost them everything?
