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.

A child is declared missing after somehow finding his way to his former psychologist's home during freezing, winter weather. Not only aren't police overly concerned about the matter, when local news reports are shown, this is somehow not the major story. See more »
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.

Pure waste of time!!!
Clinical psychologist Mary Portman lives with her paralyzed stepson Stephen and a recent accident killed her husband. Mary treats a deaf boy named Tom and one night he entered her home and just disappears from their. She starts to hear noises and she should find tom before the ice storm kills Tom. An empty thriller with a few lazy jumps- scares. The casting was good and Both Watts & Platt give their best shot. Clangs did his best on the soundtrack to create tension where none exists. Overall, it's a total waste of time.
