Mark Evans (Elijah Wood) is a twelve year old boy whose mother dies of cancer. Shortly after his father goes on a business trip and leaves him with his aunt and uncle in Maine. At first Mark gets along well with his cousins Henry (Macaulay Culkin) who is the same age as him, and Connie (Quinn Kay Culkin) who is eight years old and they quickly seem to develop a friendship. But soon Mark starts to become uneasy with some of the things Henry says. While talking about Mark's mother's passing Henry seems too interested in death. He mentions his younger brother Richard who drowned as a toddler. He also starts to display violent behavior and insinuates he may harm his younger sister Connie. Mark becomes increasingly sure that something terrible is going to happen to Connie but his warnings fall on deaf ears. Henry is always polite and well behaved around adults, and Mark's fears are attributed to the trauma of his recent loss.
