The rules are strict and absolute:
Rule No. 1: Don’t kill the body you inhabit.
Rule No. 2: Never mention your previous name again.
Rule No. 3: Don’t talk about your previous life. Ever.
But what happens when, in escaping your old life by stealing a new one, you jump out of the frying pan and into the fire?
Cousins from a clan of “dwellers” –people who inhabit the bodies and lives of others– become brothers when they take over the bodies of Jonah and Louis. An injury forces them to remain in the brothers’ house, where they discover that the basement holds a dead body! As old and new secrets come to light, it becomes clear that every action always has consequences.
