Synopsis The LaForche family, Curtis, the father, Samantha, the mother, and Hannah, the six-year-old daughter suffering from deafness, live in a small town in Ohio. Their modest farm life is quiet enough for them: Curtis has a stable job at a mining company and Samantha is a house wife who partially works as a seamstress to foot the bills for the special needs of their daughter. When Curtis begins to have terrible dreams every night the relationship with his family and the rest of the community starts to shake, although none of that can be compared to his own fears for what the nightmare may entail. The fear of his visions predicting some kind of catastrophe, perhaps even the Apocalypses, forces him to construct a tornado-proof refuge behind their home, and his behaviour becomes increasingly strange. In addition, his personal fears are increased by the fact that his mother was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia.
