When she meets the guy renting the room to her, Sebastian (Jessy Jones), they seem to hit it off. He’s polite and accommodating, and the only rule he has for the house is that they stay out of each other’s rooms. Although Mia is a little curious about such secrecy, she easily agrees since everyone needs their privacy, right?
As time passes, Mia becomes more discouraged by the lack of job opportunities she has. It feels like she’s being overlooked and she has no idea how to make herself stand out in the crowd. How to make herself… memorable. It doesn’t help that she’s also started to notice Sebastian acting… weird… especially when he claims to be going on dates.
Then one day, as Mia’s doing laundry, she notices that one of Sebastian’s shirts got mixed in with her clothes. Although she knows she’s not supposed to, she decides to quickly go to his room to drop the shirt off since Sebastian is gone on one of his dates. But once inside the room, her curiosity about his odd behavior and secrecy gets the best of her, which leads to her snooping around.
That’s when Mia finds a book.
Overwhelmed with intrigue, she opens the book and sees Sebastian’s handwriting. The more she reads, the more shocked she becomes as the macabre words paint vivid images in her mind. It’s truly horrifying stuff, although she is inexplicably drawn to it. The dark contents scrawled across the pages speak to her and give her a renewed sense of purpose, and she suddenly knows what she needs to do to become immortalized.
