During a lakeside holiday, 14-year-old Hannah isn't best pleased to have been dragged to the middle of nowhere with her step-dad Andreas whom she cannot stand. Hannah is convinced that he is trying to get rid of her. Andreas, on the other hand, is certain that there is something wrong with the girl and is trying to convince Hannah's insecure mother Lisa to send her to a facility. The hostility between the two grows. In the woods behind the lake house, Hannah is befriended by the charismatic but mysterious Elijah - he's older than her, wild and probably dangerous. As his influence over Hannah grows and her relationship with her step-dad deteriorates, events by the lake take a decidedly sinister turn...
