Synopsis:

 

Separated for years due to a secret squabble among their parents, a group of cousins reunite following the death of an uncle. Their mission is to help close up the family cottage for good, but in doing so, they uncover old family photos that include a woman in a wheelchair.

 

None know who the woman was, but the older cousins have a vague memory of her presence, and of the loud scream they heard the last time they saw her.

 

As the teens sort through the family’s past and learn its secrets, each learns truths about themselves.
