Two newly-motherless siblings spend the days leading up to Christmas in complete isolation with their soon-to-be stepmom who is haunted by her own demons.
Six months after a sudden tragedy occurs in their lives, siblings Mia (Lia McHugh) and Aiden (Jaeden Martell, It) are told they will be celebrating Christmas at the remote cabin they’ve visited since they were little. The only catch is that their author father Richard (Richard Armitage) is also bringing his new fiancé—and subject of his latest book—Grace (Riley Keough, It Comes at Night). In an attempt to encourage his children to bond with Grace, Richard leaves the reluctant threesome alone at the cabin for a few days as he returns to the city for work. After a severe blizzard strikes, frightening and bizarre events start happening, and the line between reality and terrifying imagination blurs into a spiraling nightmare where no one is safe. In their follow-up to the acclaimed Goodnight Mommy (PFF24), writers and directors Severin Fiala and Veronika Franz return to the austere confines of a remote home and examine strained maternal relationships with a fresh and unsettling perspective that forces you to question everything.
CAST: RILEY KEOUGH, JAEDEN MARTELL, LIA MCHUGH, ALICIA SILVERSTONE
