Chloe works as a nanny but her life is a mess. Although she is desperate to adopt a child of her own, she needs to work her way through life and get things in order. Fortunately, Chloe lands the perfect job as a live-in nanny for the wealthy family of the Browns, with Emily, the mother, Michael, the father, and their son. Chloe hopes that with his new job she will finally sort her life out and have that baby she always wanted. But things that seem perfect from far are far from perfect. She soon realizes that there is something odd about the family and they are not what they seem to be. Chloe also learns about a certain ex-boyfriend/love interest of Emily who supposedly is causing problems in her married life. Ergo, Chloe tries to help her, only to find herself in more trouble than she expected. And thus she becomes a captive of the Browns. Will Chloe be able to escape the danger?
