Kay (Emily Mortimer) and her daughter Sam (Bella Heathcote) travel to Kay's mother and Sam's grandmother Edna's home in the woods where they have been alerted that she has not been seen by neighbors in a while. The pair find the house empty, the walls and fruit covered in mould, several new locks on doors, and various notes around the house supposedly from Edna (Robyn Nevin) which range from simple reminders ("take pills") to ominous phrases ("do not follow it"). It is apparent that Edna suffers from dementia and that Kay and Sam have not been in touch with her much although they are both concerned over her wellbeing. They alert the police and stay in the house as a multi-day search takes place. Sam witnesses unsettling phenomena in the property while Kay is besieged by nightmares about a cabin that contains a rotting body, a decrepit old man, and is covered in the same mould as is in Edna's house.
One morning, Kay awakens to find Edna in the kitchen. Edna is aloof about where she has been, changing the subject whenever questioned and seems annoyed about the fuss being made over her disappearance. A doctor inspects Edna and finds her to be in good physical health besides from a strange black bruise on Edna's chest. The doctor requests that Kay and Sam stay with Edna for a while to observe her condition. While Sam and Edna bond with Edna giving Sam a family ring, Kay struggles to keep a balance between work and caring for Edna and decides to look into putting her into a care home. Sam stumbles upon a sketchbook from Kay's dad that contains the cabin that Kay has been dreaming about. Kay reveals the cabin was the first building on the property and was where Kay's great grandfather lived. He supposedly died from dementia after being abandoned by his family. Parts of the cabin have been incorporated into the house they are currently in, most notably a stained glass window in the front door which is slowly being consumed by mould. Kay also begins to witness the strange phenomena in the house that has been haunting Sam.
