When a young woman is found brutally murdered, Detective Inspector Adam Ward is tasked to find her killer. His investigation centres on a group of university friends, and the family she was holidaying with at their manor house in rural England. Adam finds there are quite a few people with motive, including the host Mike Mitchell whom he suspects of having an affair with the victim. He also suspects that Mike's wife Jennifer is lying and questions her state of mind. The visions she talks about pique his curiosity but he is not sure if it is a ruse to protect herself. Adam finds himself in a conflicting position when he falls in love with their daughter, Maddie. When the murderer strikes a second time, Adam is sure they're dealing with a serial killer.
