When Essie Singh and her husband, Sanjay, move into their new home, they expect to do renovations, they don’t expect to be confronted with a curse that threatens both their relationship and Sanjay’s life.
Essie has always seen herself as someone defined by her ambitions, a cold and independent woman, whose only soft spot is her husband. She never imagined herself as a mother, but then she finds out she’s pregnant. As her difficult pregnancy transforms her body and life into something foreign to her, her husband spends the nights pacing in the attic, and the house begins to whisper.
As Essie’s pregnancy progresses, both her and her husband’s lives are warped by a curse that has haunted her family for generations, leaving a string of fatherless daughters in its wake. Essie must confront the past and end the cycle of violence or risk losing her husband and damning her own daughter to the same fate.
