Emily Browning and Arielle Kebbel star as Anna and Alex, two sisters with a special bond, who have to try uncover the mysterious past of their new soon-to-be stepmother, Rachel, played by Elizabeth Banks.
Anna is the quiet sister, the meeker one. However she is also the one that is haunted by visions beyond the dead and broken memories and dreams of the night her mother died. Anna ultimately had to spend time in a mental institution from the loss.
When Anna returns home, she is “welcomed” by Rachel, but Anna is reluctant to play “house” with her.
As Anna starts to rebel against Rachel’s pressence, Alex acts like a mediator for the family, while always staying close to Anna’s side, protecting her.
When Anna researches her haunting visions, she come across a story about a murder of a family and how a young woman was thought to be responsible. Clues lead to Anna realizing that woman could be Rachel.
Anna and Alex try to gather enough evidence to out Rachel and her past, however Rachel’s not going down without a fight. Being a trained nurse, Rachel manages to drug Anna, and keeps her locked in her bedroom whilst her father is away.
Will the sisters manage to overcome Rachel or will the “evil step mother” prevail again?
