As a kind-hearted college graduate struggling with mental illness, it’s easy for Heather to turn a blind eye to the unsettling behavior of a family member. After all, what could her frail, elderly grandmother be capable of?
After an accident leaves her mother in critical condition, Heather clings to what family she has left by taking care of her mentally unwell grandmother, Rose. Heather wants to enjoy the summer with her friends but is forced to juggle managing her grandmother's unsettling, and at times violent behavior, while keeping her own psychological health in check. Soon Heather realizes she cannot care for her grandmother alone and hires Nick, a charming and patient caregiver who comes to take care of Rose. The day arrives for a long-anticipated party. A multitude of friends and acquaintances have shown up for what will no doubt be a wild night. Accompanied by Sam, Heather for once seems to be enjoying her time in the house. Her enjoyment is quickly halted when confronted by her aggressive ex-boyfriend in a secluded bathroom. Things are made hauntingly worse when Rose appears.
