Synopsis

After the tragic death of her soldier husband, Bryony tries to build a new life for herself and her young son, James.

Struggling with her grief, she fails to notice that James has become secretive and withdrawn, spending hours alone in his room playing out death scenes with his toys.

When an overflowing sink brings down the living room ceiling, Bryony is convinced that James is responsible despite his protests that he is not to blame.

With their house half-flooded, Bryony bundles James into the car and drives to her parents' house only to discover that her sister, Lisa, is house-sitting.

The sisters are not close but, reluctantly, Lisa agrees to let them stay.

Soon there are more unexplained incidents and when Lisa notices that strange things happen whenever James is upset she becomes convinced that he must have some form of psychic power.

Bryony ridicules the idea but agrees that James is deeply disturbed.

When she discovers that James has built a giant dream-catcher in his bedroom to protect himself from evil spirits Bryony finally realizes that the boy is terrified.

He tells her that he believes he is being followed by an unseen presence and soon the two sisters are convinced that there really is something supernatural happening.

Bryony confesses to Lisa that when her husband, Steve, last returned home from Afghanistan he had been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and had been possessive and violent. Eventually Bryony had become so frightened that she had run away and taken James with her.

As the paranormal incidents become increasingly threatening, Bryony realizes that Steve’s spirit has returned to reclaim his son.

Now she has to find a way to confront Steve as she knows that, if she cannot find a way to stop him, she and James will be separated for ever.
