Plagued by an unresolved trauma from her past and shocked by a series of disturbing coincidences, Adelaide feels her obsession grow and materialize and realizes that something bad is about to happen to her family. After a busy day at the beach with their friends, the Tylers (Emmy-winning actress Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon and Noelle Sheldon), Adelaide and her family return home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons see the silhouette of four figures holding hands in the driveway.
