In 1880s Dublin, renowned photographer Brock Blennerhasset (Michael Smiley) is an expert at post-mortem photography, making his subjects look alive. His niece, aspiring actress Nancy Vickers (Eileen O'Higgins) helps him, especially after he's injured after taking a beautiful photo of a family with their loved one who has passed away.

While visiting a grave site after a negative goes missing, he encounters gravedigger Conall Molloy (Kerr Logan), who aspires to work in the field of photography. After Molloy goes on a mission to help Blennerhasset locate the missing negative, he gets a job as the photographer's assistant.

Meanwhile, police detective Frederick Regan (Aidan O’Hare) investigates a series of murders that have been staged to appear as suicides.

As the body count begins to escalate, Brock, Molloy and Nancy must stop a murderer intent on ending not just their business, but their lives.
