Ghost Strands is the interwoven story of ordinary people being pushed to the limit, seeing how far they would go to save their own lives. Each story takes place with a new character, confronted with what appears to be an insurmountable task, handed down to them by a member of a mysterious organization. Everyone is free to deny their challenge, but no one has dared. These seemingly insignificant actions begin to expose a much larger conspiracy, in where a power struggle is at play between two warring factions.
