But as time passes Alice's depression takes a turn for the worse, and she becomes convinced that the baby is conspiring against her. David must decide if his wife is loosing her mind, or if the child is plotting their doom. 'The Small Assassin' is based on the short story by legendary sci-fi author Ray Bradbury.
