After new neighbors move in next door, a grieving mother played by Andrea Riseborough (“Birdman,” “Mandy”) begins to question her reality in this disturbing psychological thriller.

The new neighbors’ young daughter Megan quickly captivates Laura, bringing back painful memories of her own daughter who died several years earlier. Soon Laura’s memories turn to obsession as Megan’s disturbing behavior begins to convince her of something supernatural. As Laura’s determination to get to the bottom of it all consumes her, her family begins to fracture and the line between the extraordinary and reality becomes increasingly blurred in this haunting story of a mother’s love.

Northern Irish director Stacey Gregg’s sophisticated thriller won Best International Film at the Galway Film Fleadh, Ireland’s most prestigious festival.
