In June 2012, in Oxnard, California, recent high school graduate Jesse lives with his father and grandmother. In the apartment below lives Ana, who everyone believes to be a witch. One night, Ana is found murdered, and the police suspect that Oscar, a former classmate of Jesse, is the culprit because Oscar was seen fleeing from Ana's apartment before her body was discovered. Jesse and his friend, Hector, decide to investigate Ana's apartment, and find black magic items, Santa Muerte items and a picture of Jesse. They also discover several VHS tapes—including tapes from Katie & Kristi's childhood. They also find a journal of spells, including one that discusses temporal doorways that take people out of time and into "unholy" locations.
