Miles and Flora, two beautiful orphans, are left in the care of their new governess. The governess is haunted by visions of the past and becomes increasingly uneasy about the children's well-being. But are the ghosts really a threat or just the fantasies of a lonely woman? One of the most eerily atmospheric stories in the English language, The Turn of the Screw has been the subject of films, plays and opera.
