Seventeen year old Sarah has plenty to be excited about.

She's about to graduate from high school and she’s dating the hottest guy on campus, a grade-A stud named Derrick.

But lately, she's had the weirdest image etched in her mind. It's always the same: a young woman on a bridge, holding a child as if she is going to jump. When she asks her friend Alice about it, she learns of a horrifying urban legend that bears a striking resemblance. The story involves a young girl who has a baby out of wedlock in the 70's and keeps the news secret from her parents, including her minister father. When the truth is revealed, the baby brings shame upon the family.

It's said that after getting into a fight with her dad, the girl runs off with her baby to the Governor's Bridge. There a mysterious old man promises her warmth and safety, but the truth is too terrible to imagine.

Years later, Sarah's family moves into the same house as the girl in the so-called legend. When Sarah and Derrick become romantically involved, the consequences threaten to repeat history. Suddenly Sarah is being haunted by visions of a peculiar old man. Will Sarah end up suffering the same fate?
