The game is called Beatie Bow, and the kids play it for the thrill of giving themselves a scare. It's Beatie Bow, risen from the dead!
When Abigail is drawn in, the game quickly changes from a harmless little scare to an extraordinary adventure, as she is transported to a place that is strangely familiar...
And in a Sydney she barely recognises, she'll meet the real Beatie Bow and the family that will change her life.
Total Running Time: 6 hours, 17 Minutes. 5 CDs.
