A pregnant woman is on the run, terrified of something. During her getaway, she stops her car to give birth to an unwanted child. Years after this incident, Laura is now a teacher and single mother living alone with her son David. One night, an ominous noise rocks the little boy's room, and the next day the child contracts an unknown illness. Could it be related to Laura's past?
