While shopping supplies in a local store, Megan befriends the seller Nick and buys a magazine with an article about communication with the dead in the summer solstice, the time of year when there is the greatest length of daylight. While in her house, Megan is haunted by a spirit that she believes is Sofie trying to communicate with her.

Did You Know?
One of the first films to be produced in and around New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.
Solstice (2008) has that professional quality in a mid range budget movie. But, its rated PG.
The plot is almost like that of What Lies Beneath, but played amongst
teenagers. Very well made, the acting is authentic, characters are
diverse and the plot doesn't give in till the end. The camera work and
editing is very smooth, and not overdone, the sound effects as well.
All in all you would enjoy this movie and worth your money.
The down side for those thrill seekers and horror fans, is there is
zero suspense, and no jolts, not even with the sound effects. It's more
on the drama side. The Sixth Sense is far more scarier than this.
And for those who likes skins, well, although all of the actors and
actress are very good looking there is no part in the movie that could
turn you on, RATED PG!
