Sarah (Taylor Schilling, 'Orange is the new black') is a mother who is worried about the inusual and strange behavior of her young son Miles (Jackson Robert Scott, 'It'). She believes that something supernatural, unspeakable, of dark nature is chasing the little one and his family and friends. Fearing for the family's safety, Sarah is confront with a decision: she must choose between her maternal instinct to love and protect the little Miles and a desperate need to investigate in depth what or who is causing his dark turn and make it stop. To pursue it, she is forced to look into the past, taking the audience on a wild ride, one where the line between perception and reality becomes frighteningly blurry.

Trivia The Prodigy

The now infamous scene at the end of the first trailer, along with other scenes, had to be re-edited for test audiences due to their intense scare factor. Miles has heterochromia, a difference in coloration between both eyes (in Miles' case, his right eye is brown and his left eye is blue).
