Bryan and Ellie Stockton hope they left behind their demons when they move to their idyllic new home in southern West Virginia. Above all, they want a fresh start for their young son Derrick, who witnessed the tumultuous first years of their marriage - years that were rife with substance abuse, rage, and resentment.
Their bright hope for the future is darkened when a child disappears from their neighborhood. The couple becomes suspicious of a reclusive resident with a degenerative brain disorder.
Strange events begin to happen in their house, just as Derrick tells them about a new friend who visits him at night. Their son may be acting out from the trauma he endured...or he could be the obsession of something much more sinister.
