The film centers on Katie (Whelan), who moves to town with her young daughter to start a new life after enduring abuse in her past. She befriends another mother, Angela, and her husband Brian (Cage). Angela notices odd behavior from Katie and begins to question whether Katie’s intentions are as innocent as she makes them out to be, or if something dark is lurking beneath the surface.
