A boy is put on a train by his stepmother to make his first journey on his own. But what should be a thrilling ride becomes weirder than anyone could have imagined when the train stalls at the mouth of a tunnel and an elegant woman in white offers to help the boy while away the hours by telling him stories.
But these are stories with a difference - and each is more deliciously chilling than the last ... Who is this mysterious storyteller, and why are her tales so dark and macabre?
