In an effort to hammer out his latest script, a screenwriter, Paul, returns to his hometown on Block Island to hunker down in a rental house for the weekend. Suffering writer’s block and a clear case of alcoholism, he struggles to move forward in the increasingly unsettling house. The writer is soon joined by others, with which he has a complicated history. A woman that he shares a strong but peculiar bond with, and his younger brother and sister, who harbor some resentment over his leaving them behind for a more successful life. As the weekend progresses, a bad storm traps them together inside the house. With no way out and facing their troubled past, the house’s own history starts to haunt them. Paranoia and fear set in as the threat becomes increasingly real. As history catches up with them, will facing the past head on be the only way for survival, or will doing so destroy them?
