On a cold, snowy night, a mother (Ward) lies in bed reading as her two children sleep in their rooms. When something trips the home alarm system, a frightening chain of events is set in motion. As the night wears on, a mysterious intruder will elude detection by the police while physically and psychologically terrorizing the family. The mother struggles to protect her children, but is breaking down physically and emotionally. At dawn, the intruder's identity is revealed, bringing a violent end to the nightmare.
