Sarah Zarn (Katy Boyer, White Dwarf) is a young nurse starting out on her own. When she’s forced to vacate her apartment, she finds herself back home, and once again in the middle of bitter and unresolved tensions between her mother, Lily (Emmy nominee Shelley Fabares, Coach), and her father, Don (Gerald McRaney, Simon & Simon). For Sarah, the only moments of peace are with Paul (Joel Bissonnette, Fight Club), her musician boyfriend, and her younger brother, Steven (Jeremy Renner, A Friend’s Betrayal). But when night comes, so do Sarah’s childhood nightmares... and suddenly one of them comes true. Lily appears to have vanished with no word of where she’s gone.
