About the film:

Official Selection of the 2021 Sundance Film Festival. After a traumatic incident, Molly moves into a new apartment to recover and begin a new life. Not long after her arrival, persistent knocks begin to wake her up at night, as if someone was trapped, but no one else in the building believes or is willing to help her.

“With echoes of Rosemary’s Baby and Rear Window in a contemporary #MeToo world…as thought-provoking as it is unnerving”

—James Kleinmann for The Queer Review
