Living in her family's secluded mansion, Audrina is kept alone and out of sight and is haunted by nightmares of her older sister, First Audrina, who was left for dead in the woods after an attack. Everyone in her family knows the secret surrounding First Audrina's death except Audrina herself. As she begins to question her past and her disturbing dreams, the grim truth is slowly revealed." Tupper will play Audrina's father, Damian, with Moseley as her love interest, Arden. Mike Rohl will direct from a script by Scarlett Lacey with Dan Angel and Jane Startz executive producing and Harvey Kahn producing for Everywhere Studios, Jane Startz Productions and Front Street Productions.
