Award-winning horror from director Simon Rumley. Lord Donald (Roger Lloyd-Pack) and Lady Nancy (Kate Fahy) Brocklebank reside in the magnificent but run-down Longleigh House with James (Leo Bill), their handicapped son. Donald is preparing to sell the house when Nancy becomes very ill. Donald arranges for the family nurse, Mary (Sarah Ball), to take care of Nancy while he attempts to raise enough money to pay for an operation. However, James wants to prove to his father that he can look after his mother on his own and decides to lock Nurse Mary out of the house. It isn't long before James starts mixing his mother's pills and forgetting to take his own medication, and as the stress of looking after his mother increases, so does his own condition.
