Candace is getting ready to celebrate her ninth birthday, the first one since her parents got divorced. Her father has promised to visit for the occasion. As the day approaches, Candace notices some deeply unsettling behavior from her mother, whose very physicality is beginning to change. A tense and tragic nightmare that evokes childhood anxieties with an empathetic heart and a skill for knockout horror storytelling. - Mitch Davis
