How far can a mind go when it’s cut off from the real world?
Rachel (Lydia Page) is a young girl who grew up in a remote house in the woods, following her family’s esoteric cult.
After her dad Philip dies, her controlling mom Carol (Julia Ormond) makes her live with his dead body, away from the outside world. They only leave for short, strange trips in the woods, thinking the dead body might come back to life. Inside the house, Carol’s strict rules control everything. But outside, people start to wonder about Philip’s vanishing.
Then Dan (Rocco Fasano), a boy, comes to the house and befriends Rachel. To her mom, he’s a big threat.
