Zoë Martinique is trying to get a grip on her life. She can't talk and is trying to learn sign language after loosing her voice in the Wraith. She's also been told to change her diet or be treated for diabetes. It seems being out-of-body, does take its toll and the longer she's out the worse it gets. As if that wasn't enough problems, it seems that her mother is acting strange, there's a series of weird murders (body parts are missing), and the ghosts are worried. Everyone is trying to tell her what to do and it's annoying. Zoë just wants to crawl home and nest -- but somebody has to do something and it looks like she's got the short straw. From official release/information:
