Alan is a successful classical music critic. His wife Sarah is an obsessively grieving woman, struggling with an unspoken tragedy even after months of institutionalized therapy. The couple embarks on a recuperative trip to Italy and arranges for a house sitter, Kelly. Young and lonely, longing for commitment and the better things in life, Kelly is quickly joined by her younger brother Tim (RJ Mitte from BREAKING BAD) and her trashy boyfriend Jesse. It’s not long before the trio find themselves drawn into a web of disturbing revelations when Jesse suddenly decides to kidnap eight-year-old Adam from the supermarket. But not all is what it seems with Adam. There is nothing of him in the news, and from the moment he arrives, he seems to radiate innocent control over the house’s hapless occupants.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
