Synopsis
Shortly before sunset inside a large mountain estate in the Adirondacks, Gertie and Albert—a wealthy couple who commissioned the summer home—have just arrived in the living room. The room is chock-full of moving boxes. The Housekeeper, a young woman hired from a neighboring town, is busying herself with unpacking. We learn that the new house was built on the demolished remains of Gertie's grandmother’s estate. Albert asks the Housekeeper what she thinks of the house. Environmentally concerned Gertie expected it to be more eco-friendly. After much tension, there’s suddenly a blackout. Gertie becomes more nervous, alluding to sinister news that day. Albert and Gertie sit in the gathering darkness, as the tension grows.
