A young girl who survived a family massacre is invited to live with her neighbors, but realizes that her nightmare is far from over when she falls prey to sinister forces in this supernatural thriller from writer/director Marina de Van (In My Skin, Don't Look Back). Neve is a typical 11-year-old girl from a small Irish town. One day, her life is changed forever when her mother, father, and younger brother are brutally butchered in their home. Try as Neve does to convince detectives that the house itself is to blame for the bloodbath, the investigators suspect that a gang of psychotic vandals are the true culprits. Her future looking increasingly uncertain, Neve is quickly taken in by her benevolent neighbors Nat (Marcella Plunkett) and Lucas (Padraic Delaney), who work closely with a social worker to help the girl get past the traumatic incident. Meanwhile, a series of disturbing, unexplainable events indicates that the worst may be yet to come.
