The day she breathes her last breath in 1913, Mrs. Proctor wills all inheritance to her beloved daughter, Millie. Upon realising her sister’s last testament, Agatha Pitball knew she must act quickly or her late sister’s fortune would slip through her fingers. She is determined to have the inheritance transferred in her name whatever it may cost her. She acts on a sinister plan to poison Millie. Millie is oblivious of her aunt’s murderous scheme. She believes she has contracted an unknown disease as Pitball told her to believe so. She only has a few weeks left to live.

Meanwhile, Erica Killick acquires an old mirror from an old lady in an antique fair. At home, she gets in touch with Millie through the mirror. Erica travels to the past and discovers what Pitball is up to. She has to help Millie from her imminent death.
