A teenage boy has closed himself off to the world, opting for only computer games, darkened windows, and a steady diet of homeschooled lessons from his survivalist mother, Lydia. His gradual estrangement from his father and brother – coupled with Lydia’s loosening grip on reality – creates a dangerous atmosphere of fear and isolation at home. A series of events push mother and son to a breaking point, testing their delicate alliance like never before.
