Description

Steven (Colin Farrell), an eminent cardiothoracic surgeon, is married to Anna (Nicole Kidman), a respected ophthalmologist. They live a happy and healthy family life with their two children, Kim (Raffey Cassidy) and Bob (Sunny Suljic). But Steven has formed a friendship with Martin (Barry Keoghan), a fatherless 16 year-old boy whom he has taken under his wing. Things take a sinister turn when Steven introduces Martin to his family, gradually throwing their world into turmoil and forcing Steven to make a shocking sacrifice or run the risk of losing everything.
