An academic couple lose their young son while making love in the room next door. When the woman falls into a deep mental crisis, the man, who works as a therapist, decides to treat her himself. He will do this using exposure therapy, meaning that she should be exposed to her fears in order to overcome them. They travel to their cottage “Eden,” a location where the woman previously has been working on a thesis about witch-hunts, which appears to be a central factor of her fears. Soon after the treatment begins, the woman loses control of herself as what appears to be supernatural events start to occur.
