In this film adaptation of author V.C. Andrews' bestselling novel, dreams of an inheritance turn into a nightmare for four innocent children left fatherless by a tragic accident. Locked in the deserted north wing of the family mansion by a cruel grandmothe (Fletcher), their only hope lies in survival and escape - but a horrible truth awaits them in the main house. This novel was the one that launched the phenomenal career of author Andrews.
This dramatic tale was adapted from V.C. Andrews' terrifying best-seller. A quartet of siblings spend a good part of their formative years imprisoned in their grandmother's attic while their greedy mother campaigns for their grandfather's considerable wealth.
