In a last-ditch attempt to pull her family back together, New Yorker Adelle (Maria Bello) travels with young daughter Sarah (Sophie Stuckey) to Wales - to see Sarah's father James (Sean Bean) and try and patch their lives back together in the surroundings of an old cliff-top farmhouse.
But Adelle's worst nightmares are realized when, days into the trip, Sarah is tragically swept out to sea, pulled into the dark depths despite Adelle's desperate attempts to save her.
While James leads the search for Sarah's body, a guilt-ridden Adelle is haunted by visions and traces of her daughter - its almost as if Sarah is trapped somewhere in the house itself.
Learning of an ancient local legend of a place called 'The Dark'- an ethereal land of the dead that is a distorted mirror image of the real world - Adelle becomes convinced that Sarah is trying to communicate to her from The Dark.
When she finds a strange, scarred little girl in Sarah's bed, Adelle is sure this girl EBRILL is the key to getting her daughter back. For the legend dictates that the dead can be returned from The Dark if a sacrifice is made - one of the living for one of the dead. And if this girl is who she says she is, she died over 60 years before..
Unfortunately, all James can see in his wife is a woman on the very edge of sanity - to him, the girl Ebrill is a runaway, nothing more.
However, when local farmer LEWYN recognizes Ebrill from his childhood 60 years before, Adelle knows her suspicions are true. She makes the ultimate leap of faith - throwing herself into the ocean, and into The Dark itself, to get her daughter back.
