Arlene is like a ghost in her life. She lives in a small town in the midlands – surrounded by field after field and endless woodlands. One morning Arlene wakes in the woods beside the body of a young woman. The body is soon discovered and suspicion spreads through the community. Increasingly drawn to the dead girl’s family – her grieving sister and accused boyfriend – Arlene barricades herself in at night, afraid to fall asleep. Soon, her sleeping and waking realities blur. And all this time someone is watching her.
