David, Wendell, Darlene and Francis Hamilton are siblings who have recently moved to a quaint town in Northern California. They are struggling to settle in and adjust to the new area, while still grieving the recent death of their parents. David, the oldest, has taken it upon his shoulders to pick up the responsibility for the orphaned family. The twins, Wendell and Darlene, seem to have their own dark agenda and share an eerie connection that keeps them apart from the family. Francis, the youngest and most sensitive of the family, has recently found an old video camera that belonged to his deceased parents, and he's using it to work on a school project about his family. It's through Francis' eyes that we soon get to know the Hamiltons and realize that there are much more disturbing elements lurking below their "ordinary" household. Once the other siblings realize that Francis' project may put their dark secrets in jeopardy, Francis faces the toughest decisions of his life--to become a cold-blooded killer like his older siblings--or turn to the only people who have ever truly loved him, and spare the lives of his family's latest victims.
