During each episode, Lawrence Chou introduces two or three different segments based on peoples experiences with the paranormal.

This includes prophetic dreams, unidentified flying objects, psychic phenomena and more. Each guest or guests are seated in a chair and tell the story of their encounter with the paranormal. As the unravel their tale, a series of actors portray the events for the viewer to get a visual as to the activity described. In many cases the guests were considered non believers of the occult until their encounter and have since changed their mind about life after death. At the end of each small segment there is a text update as to if the paranormal activity continues or if it was stopped. Some of the stories included in this series center around famous events such as the sinking of the Titanic. During a routine visit to the Titanic exhibit, a woman purchased a piece of coal from the ship and brought home something more than what she paid for. In other cases, people have had encounters with the ghosts of loved ones recently passed. These spirits have somehow imparted some knowledge to their living relatives. It could be in the form of encouragement or a warning of future disaster. Other more traditional haunting accounts are also explored in this show. From people hearing noises in their homes to objects being moved. Each guest tells what they did to help eliminate the problem, if the ghostly encounter seemed threatening. Some people called in paranormal investigators, while others tried cleansing the home on their own. The nature of the haunting determines what steps are taken to remove the perceived danger. As the subject matter may be disturbing for some viewers, it is recommended that young children not watch this series.
