- DescriptionAfter his grandmother passes away, thirteen-year-old Jason is sent to Florida to join his father and help him clean out her house. Although he never knew his grandmother, Jason becomes curious about her past. He discovers a mysterious postcard containing clues and embarks on a strange and thrilling adventure through balmy Florida. Jason also finds an old pulp fiction magazine with a story that details one man's love of a woman who may just be Jason's grandmother. After receiving a creepy phone call, and a group of freakish people show up at his grandmother's funeral, Jason is certain they are part of his grandmother's unkwn past.
