Alexis spends Halloween night with her cousins Clara and Pierre-Luc. On the menu: movies and horror stories. Alex has a great story his dad told him about a few days before. Jacques Miville, the former hardware store in the village, was supposedly a murderer. He apparently had a hobby of cutting up his victims and making their bodies disappear. However, before the police could even prove anything, a fire ravaged the hardware store, taking with it the alleged criminal and his secrets. Since then, a legend claims that if you dial the old number of the hardware store, the ghost of Miville answers. The three cousins are tempted to check if the legend is true... An effective ghost story that does not make you want to disturb ghosts.
