Plot Summary

Mary Portman (Naomi Watts) is a widowed child psychologist who lives in isolation in rural Maine.

When one of Portman's young patients vanishes without a trace, she becomes convinced that the boy's (Jacob Tremblay) ghost is now in the house as a dangerous ice storm starts to wreak havoc outside.
