Dot senses the tension and strange relationships among the Deer family members during dinner.

Popular cheerleader Nina Deer's (Elisha Cuthbert) world is turned upside down when her parents (Edie Falco and Martin Donovan) adopt a recently orphaned deaf girl, Dot (Camilla Belle). But in this suburban home, things are not what they seem. Dot's arrival puts a crack in Nina's idyllic social life and the dark secrets her family harbors soon become exposed.

Nina's friends, including the handsome Connor (Shawn Ashmore), develop an odd fascination with the newcomer and confide in her their darkest secrets. Dot quietly shoulders the burdens of those around her, simultaneously hiding her own secrets as well.
