Karen Wilson, a famous spiritualist medium, is accused of cheating. Items allegedly found in her cabinet during a séance, provoked a leading psychic newspaper to sue her under the Fraudulent Medium Act.
Sceptic, Robert Stone, uses his website to denounce Karen as a fraud. Stating that anyone who attends séances and is deceived by trickery is a moron.
That infuriated Paul Lovatt, a highly respected lawyer, who witnessed his wife’s grandfather materialise at a Karen Wilson séance. He declared, "Spirits have a voice; they should be allowed to use it regardless of a death certificate."
A television company agreed to televise a trial and a séance. Regardless of the abusive letters, the phone calls and a break-in at their home, Lovatt persuades a reluctant Karen to risk everything with a séance on TV.
Stone wants a professional illusionist and an escapologist on the show. He is claiming that they can produce the same paranormal phenomenon that fraudulent mediums use on gullible clients.
