One night, three people --- a couple and their child --- hurry out the door of their modest house in upstate New York, but it’s too late for them. As the opening scene of BROKEN RIVER unfolds, a spectral presence seems to be watching with cold and mysterious interest. Soon the house lies abandoned, and years later a new family moves in. Karl, Eleanor and their daughter, Irina, arrive from New York City in the wake of Karl’s infidelity to start anew. Twelve-year-old Irina becomes obsessed with the brutal murders that occurred in the house years earlier. And, secretly, so does her mother.
