Leila sees fireflies outside her window, which is odd because they usually don't come out at this time of year. She catches some and leaves them in a jar overnight.

After that, she starts to see a bug man, but it's not till her little sister starts to get seriously ill, and she sees the bug man feeding on her, that Leila realises she needs to find out what this is and how to get rid of it.
