Instagram-obsessed Sophie Grace is left her home alone without a phone when two seemingly cool local boys show up at her house. As they become increasingly threatening, she doubts whether they are as harmless and charming as they let on. Pushed to her breaking point, Sophie is forced to choose whether to remain safe or venture into a dangerous unknown.
