Soon after their arrival, Ruth starts to believe they have been followed out there by Tom's ex-girlfriend, Holly. Convinced they are being stalked, Ruth develops an obsession with Holly that threatens to destroy her relationship with Tom. Frightened, Ruth grapples with her fears and desires, all the while being drawn closer to Holly.
