Your aging mother lives in another country. Then a tenant moves into her house – he's clean, polite, helpful. At first you are relieved, until you begin to suspect that man has sinister motives.

Special thanks to the following musicians:

Halloween, Alaska for their song "Gone with the Wind"

Peals for the song "Trillium" from their album Honey (courtesy of Rough Trade Publishing)
