It’s the summer of 1989. Nine-year-old Ted Henley (Jared Breeze) and his father, John (David Morse), are the proprietors of The Mtn. Vista Motel, a crumbling resort buried in the mountains of the American West. Since Ted’s mother left, John has drifted into despondency—becoming a living ghost, haunting the motel—leaving Ted to fend for himself. In this isolation, unchecked by the bounds of parenting, Ted’s darker impulses begin to manifest. The arrival of a mysterious drifter, William Colby (Rainn Wilson), captivates young Ted, and the two form a unique friendship – setting the stage for Ted’s final, unnerving metamorphosis.
