Jackie (Hannah Emily Anderson) and Jules (Brittany Allen) travel to a remote woodland cabin to celebrate their anniversary. But for Jules, their romantic plans of long evenings and log fires are marred by a flash of suspicion when they’re visited by Sarah, Jackie’s childhood friend, who addresses Jackie as ‘Megan’. Lead by her curiosity, Jules pays Sarah a visit, and learns of a significant death in Jackie’s life which she had no knowledge of. Jules decides to confront Jackie over these discoveries; a decision which will change their relationship forever.

The dynamics of Jackie & Jules’ relationship are brought to life with two superb central performances; meanwhile this film surreptitiously paves the way for some jaw-dropping revelations. A tense thriller which keeps you guessing until the final moments.
