The Washingtons are the artistic, hippie family that everyone knows and side-eyes. Holed up in their own private compound, affectionately christened “Belle Âme”, the Washingtons keep to themselves until they choose to put on a new performance for the public.
But their hand in a murder one-year-prior weighs heavily on the minds of Blythe and Nathalian Washington. The fragile mental state of Nathalian’s younger brother, Edwin, and the constant chaos brewing around their teenaged daughters do nothing to quell their nerves. And with the two-year anniversary of the disappearance of Blythe’s cousin Georgia on the horizon, the Washingtons feel themselves slowly becoming unhinged.
When signs start to point to Georgia’s return, Blythe and Nathalian team up to try to uncover the truth, without also revealing the details of their darkest secrets.

The Washington sisters and Johnny all do some sleuthing of their own, and the discovery of Blythe and Edwin’s own deceptions rock the family.
Things quickly turn deadly, and it becomes clear that Georgia’s mysterious disappearance is far more sinister than the Washingtons ever thought possible. How far can the Washingtons push their luck before the evil finally bites back?

As the local hospital begins to fill with victims, Nikki becomes aware that the darkness is centered around her, and she is faced with the decision of either watching her new companions fall victim to a band of assassins or facing evil alone.
