Home is where the hurt is
Feature / Supernatural Thriller
(Co-written with Shelley Gustavson)
Following a traumatic breakdown, a bratty young art student is forced to recover in the isolation of her father’s mid-construction home. But as she works to rebuild her world, she stumbles across a dark, decades-old mystery.
Concept: The youthful, sun-dappled abandon of Badlands swallowed by the lurking, psychotic dread of Don’t Look Now. Peppered with the strange, obsessive air of Vertigo and the poetically haunting pulse of Sharp Objects.

During the summer of 1972, two step-siblings—Rosemary (sixteen) and Dick (nineteen)—inhabit their affluent uncle's isolated beach home while he's away, encountering and harboring an enigmatic drifter named Daisy, with whom they form a strange, perhaps troubling bond.
