Deborah (Deborah Van Valkenburgh) is a married woman with a career who just had her first baby. Instead of taking care of her child and home, she hires a nanny/housekeeper to take care of things while she continues to work from home. All sorts of things begin to go wrong in the home, which the nanny says have occurred because Deborah has offended "the household gods." Deborah scoffs at this, but then things get much worse. Was the nanny telling the truth?
