Every childhood home is haunted, and each of us are possessed by our parents. When their parents are both killed in a car accident, Louise and Mark Joyner are devastated but nothing can prepare them for how bad things are about to get.
The two siblings are almost totally estranged, and couldn't be more different. Now, however, both with equally empty bank accounts, they don't have a choice but to get along. Their one asset? Their childhood home. They need to get it on the market as soon as possible because they need the money.
Yet the house has morphed into a hoarder's paradise, and before they died their parents nailed shut the attic door. Sometimes we feel like puppets, controlled by our upbringing and our genes. Sometimes we feel like our parents treat us like toys, or playthings, or even dolls.
The past can ground us, teach us, and keep us safe. It can also trap us, and bind us, and suffocate the life out of us. As disturbing events stack up in the house, Louise and Mark have to learn that sometimes the only way to break away from the past, sometimes the only way to sell a haunted house, is to burn it all down.
