Steven is a troubled kid from Maine being sent to boarding school. While his father, Richard Portman, is driving him there, they get into a bad argument, and the car swerves into oncoming traffic, killing Richard and putting Steven in a vegetative state. Six months later, Richard's mother, Mary, is taking care of his every need. Mary is a psychologist who works from home with children and adolescents. She is upset to learn that one of her patients, a deaf child named Tom, is to be transferred to a school in Boston. Later, Mary discusses Steven with her therapist, Dr. Wilson. While she feels guilty, she has decided to put Steven in a home to be cared for because he is no longer there and is just a body.

Hey. It's going to be okay.
Just tell me we're doing the right thing.
No, sweetheart, I know you want to fix this. It's what you do. But we've tried. All right? We've been trying and look where it's gotten us.

And I think the space is gonna be good for him. For all of us. Besides, it's a good school. He'll be home by the end of the summer.

"Shut In" is so weak movie!
It's a psychological thriller film with scary moments and some jump scares in dream sequences. I'm not sure what good thing I'll say about this movie, but the story is really, really weak. No memorable quotes, weak twist and acting. It seems like they tried hard to make a movie like Orphan (2009) which is a strong psychological thriller. It's just a thriller without the thrill.
