Laura returns with her family to the orphanage where she grew up as a child, with the intention of opening a home for disabled children. The new environment awakens the imagination of his son, who begins to fall for fantasy games each time more intense. These games become to disturb Laura increasingly, to the point where she comes to think that something in the house is threatening his family. She comes with an extraordinary idea, and despite of her being a woman of clear principles, her world teeters, bringing into question all that in which she used to believe.
