When new parents Alex and Penny retreat from the city and move into a place outside town, the stress and massive sleep-deprivation caused by their infant has both of them seeing things in the house that may or may not exist. Persistent sightings of a strange woman has each of them wondering if they are suffering from hallucinations, or if their new home holds a dark, supernatural presence. As their fragile grasp on reality spirals into delirium, Alex and Penny find themselves nearly helpless to deal with the horrific truth of what is really going in this house.

- Alternate synopsis: Young urbanites Alex and Penny move to a 19th century farmhouse in the country once their new child is born. But their baby cries all night and a nearby construction project prevents sleep during the day. Completely exhausted, the new parents are suddenly terrorized by the appearance of a dirty, barefoot, night-gown clad woman on the property and even in their house... a "specter" who seems obsessed with their baby. Alex and Penny are convinced that the woman is only a hallucination, a by-product of sleep deprivation and parental anxiety, until their babysitter disappears...
