Meanwhile, in the quiet corners of his home, the grieving Hank Stanton pens heartfelt letters to his late wife. But the discovery of an ancient Russian dagger in his attic plunges him into a whirlwind of haunting dreams and a rendezvous with fate. As his path intertwines with Tatiana and Father Brett, the trio finds themselves at the epicenter of a legacy steeped in darkness.
