Plot:
Sam (Andrew Garfield) spends his days in a daze as much as he can. Disillusioned, he doesn’t have goals or plans. One night, he watches his new neighbor Sarah (Riley Keough) as she swims in the pool. She catches him staring and invites him along. They have a nice time together and set a date for the next day – but then Sarah and her roommates are just gone. Sam believes that something more than a simple move is going on and starts to investigate. But nothing could prepare him for what he uncovers.
