ANDREW FROMMER (45) and his wife, SARA (35), have recently moved to Portland, Oregon. Andrew, plagued by the paranoia of living in a new city, installs a security system to ease his fears. Unfortunately for him, they do nothing but further his paranoia. Soon mysterious videos are left for him to find, videos that show footage from his security system. Someone has hacked in. Is it Dobby, the tweeker that harasses him nightly? Is it Liam or Eric, his coworkers? He calls his wife to make sure she's okay, but it's too late. He races home to find the front open and his wife gone.
Andrew continues to receive strange tapes on his doorstep. However they are no longer footage from his home security system. They're home videos of other women being abducted. One such tape is marked with the last name "WRIGHT" and a date. The tape includes footage of a woman who desperately fights back with all her might. Andrew searches for information about the woman and learns she is the only victim to escape a serial killer's attack. In search of answers, he tracks down EMILY WRIGHT (30s) and begins a friendship. Their friendship becomes a courtship and the lines between Andrew's past and present are blurred. He confuses Sara and Emily, calling Emily by the wrong name and mistakenly seeing Sara where Emily stands. He relives his past and creates new memories with Sara through Emily. His life is falling apart. His medication is no longer working.
Andrew begins to believe that Emily had something to do with Sara's disappearance. Desperate to save their relationship and Andrew's sanity, Emily reveals to him what really happened. They really met years ago. Sara wasn't kidnapped months ago, but years ago. And that is only the beginning of the truth - and Andrew is no innocent.Andrew discovers the last of the tapes, which show clearly that he and Emily found the abductor that killed Sara. The same man Emily escaped from. In a blind rage, Andrew killed the abductor, his wife, and the killer's ten-year-old son. Andrew, shocked by the revelation of his own crimes hides the evidence and buries the horrific memories. However, his need to find Sara keeps him reliving the past, one horrific cycle after another.
