Who is the woman watching from the dim glow of the lamplight outside? Why did she disappear that tragic night, as if a figment of imagination?

Having left a problematic relationship behind in Manhattan, architect Dani moves upstate with her new husband to renovate an old modernist house. The shock of discovering him dead in the hall and Dani’s subsequent grieving are quickly punctuated by disturbing discoveries. Why did the previous owners suffer a suspicious downfall? Perhaps several break-in attempts at the house are related. Someone also appears to be stalking Dani. Could it be the jogger she sees at night? Is she the lady in the lamplight? Dani fears these unsettling individuals are connected to her husband’s murder. But how?

When her husband’s wealthy, but shady, brother, Paul offers to move in to help, Dani wonders about an ulterior motive. Suppressing buried desires, she is drawn to the similarities between Paul and her husband. Visits from her old partner only add to her problems, particularly the irritating memory block surrounding their past. Befriending her stylish female neighbour, Dani finds security footage of the murder, drawing her into an intriguing mystery – seemingly centred on the house and perhaps its secret contents. Dani is shocked to discover the reason behind the whole affair could be close to home – as, too, might be the disturbing revelation routed in her past. The mystery cries out to be solved… before it slides to a fatal conclusion.
