However, her life takes a turn for the worse when her boyfriend leaves her and she finds herself struggling to juggle work and parenting. In an effort to make things easier, Karen decides to hire a live-in nanny. She posts an ad online, and soon enough, she meets Peyton. Although at first, Peyton seems like the perfect candidate for the job, Karen soon comes to realize that her new nanny has some serious issues.

As Peyton starts to come between Karen and her children, Karen starts to investigate her nanny's past. She discovers that Peyton has countless of fake IDs and that she might not even be her real name.

She even discovers that Peyton's last employer died under suspicious circumstances.

As Karen's suspicions grow, Peyton becomes more and more unstable. She begins to cause trouble at Karen's workplace, and she becomes increasingly unstable around the children. Karen tries to confront Peyton, but Peyton is always one step ahead - she has hacked into Karen's phone, bugged her apartment, and even started to impersonate her online.

At this point, Karen realizes that she needs to take drastic action to protect her family. She contacts the police, but they don't take her seriously.
