In a last-ditch attempt to pull her family back together, New Yorker Adèle (Maria Bello) travels with young daughter Sarah (Sophie Stuckey) to Wales - to see Sarah's father James (Bean Bean) and try and patch their lives back together in the surroundings of an old cliff-top farmhouse.

But Adèle's worst nightmares are realised when, days into the trip, Sarah is tragically swept out to sea, pulled into the dark depths despite Adèle's desperate attempts to save her.

While James leads the search for Sarah's body, a guilt-ridden Adèle is haunted by visions and traces of her daughter - its almost as if Sarah is trapped somewhere in the house itself.

Learning of an ancient local legend of a place called The Dark - an ethereal land of the dead that is a distorted mirror image of the real world - Adèle becomes convinced that Sarah is trying to communicate to her from The Dark.

When she finds a strange, scared little girl in Sarah's bed, Adèle is sure this girl Ebrill (Abigail Stone) is the key to getting her daughter back. For the legend dictates that the dead can be returned from The Dark if a sacrifice is made - one of the living for one of the dead. And if this girl is who she says she is, she died over 60 years before.
