Dr. Steven Murphy (played by Colin Farrell) is a prominent cardiovascular surgeon who enjoys a flawless home with his wife Anna (Nicole Kidman) and his two children and protocols, Bob (Sunny Suljian), 12, and Kim, 14 (Raffey Cassidy). Although his life seems most idyllic, he keeps a secret. He has hosted Martin (Barry Keoghan), a fatherless teenager. As he appears more in the life of the Murphy family, all members of his family will have to face paranormal events. In the end, Martin will be a threat to all and Steven will have to deal with an event from his past.
