Ophelia Jane Worthington-Whittard believes there is a scientific explanation for everything. After her mother dies, her father packs up Ophelia and her sister and takes a job at a museum where Ophelia first discovers something is not quite right in this quiet town. For one thing, it always snows, museum exhibits appear to move, some of the portraits are almost too lifelike, a clock is counting down to...something, and then there's the strange encounter with the mysterious boy locked away in a far corner of the museum... Ophelia must set aside everything she thinks she knows about the world and find her courage in order to solve the mystery and help the nameless boy.
