Lottie and Neil are beginning a new life about two years after Neil suffered a debilitating accident. Now back to almost full health, Neil gets a job as a head caretaker for a wealthy couple named Ted and Neeta. This means that the couple and their small son Albie have moved inter a cottage on the property where Neil will be working. Things seem bleak at the start, but there is promise, even if the couple who own the property seem to be hiding secrets.
One particular window in their cottage affords Lottie the opportunity to see into her neighbor’ home. In fact, she can’t stop observing. The couple that her husband is working for are said to be childless, but Lottie feels differently. She believes there’s a child in the home, and she cannot understand why they’ve never seen the child under any circumstances.
During the course of time, Neeta becomes the child minder for Albie, but Lottie does not really trust the situation. In fact, she does not trust Neeta at all and is determined to discover their secrets and why they are hiding them. Factor in deception and some flashbacks to a couple of decades ago, and things slowly come together. Some shocking twists are revealed, leading to a thrilling conclusion.
