Seven-year-old Chloe (Lexy Kolker) never leaves her ramshackle suburban home unless under the watchful eye of her paranoid father (Emile Hirsch). He trains his daughter to adopt an assumed identity if she’s ever separated from him, or to hide in a well-provisioned panic room should he not return from one of his infrequent forays outside. Something clearly isn’t quite right with this weird family dynamic and Chloe is determined to find out exactly what lies outside the door her father is so frightened of. Sci-fi action meets dystopian chills in a genre-bending psychological thriller made with energy, innovation and imagination.
