While mom is away, Abby and her stepdad Joe spend a week together for the first time. Then an
unusual crate appears on their doorstep, and they work to unravel the meaning of its contents—a
life-sized doll with no face, and an instruction manual with no words. The deeper they delve into the secrets of this package, the more it threatens their tenuous emotional equilibrium. Was this doll sent here to repair their relationship? Or is it a harbinger of a more disturbing truth for Joe?
