Synopsis: Dana Milgrom (Shauna Macdonald) is a track coach and mother who's survived a near-death car accident, only to find herself paralyzed and trapped inside her own body. Forced to communicate via an artificial voice program and hooked to a breathing machine, she becomes convinced that a terrifying presence called Nails exists inside her hospital room. No one believes her - not even her own husband, who think she's experiencing a mental breakdown. As her marriage disintegrates and her grip on reality starts to shred, Dana fights to convince the doctors and staff that Nails is real and intent on destroying her.

- Are you sure?

Did they say anything?

- No.

Couldn't turn my head

to see them.

Just heard them.

- Well, the ventilator's

on all night.


It sounds like

someone breathing.

- I don't like this place.

- Look, we never thought

anything like this

could ever happen.

This is all the

insurance will cover.

For now.

- Can't you stay here with me?


- What about Gemma?

- I'm not a child.

I don't need anybody

watching me.

You can stay here with mom.

I hope I didn't frighten you.

I didn't know there

was anyone in here.

- Sorry, I...

Guess I shouldn't

be wandering around.

- I'm Elizabeth Leaming,

the director here.

You're Dana Milgrom's

daughter, isn't that right?

- Yes.

I'm Gemma.

- Yes, I've seen you

before visiting her.

She's very lucky to have

your love and support.

- I don't think she feels

very lucky right now.

- Maybe not right now.

But things will improve.

You'll see.

- Can you feel this one?

- Mmm.

- That's your ring finger.

- Sorry I'm so much trouble.

Maybe you should have

stuck with Hannah.

What, after sixteen years

and one child,

you're apologizing for

stealing me from my first wife?

It's a bit late for that,

don't you think?

Plus, you're much younger,

much hotter.

Which reminds me...

I was speaking to Jim

and he's gonna let me

take over the men's

as well as the women's squad...

Until you're better.


this is the new girl

I was telling you about,


She transferred in

a couple of weeks ago.

You're gonna love her.

She's a total winner.

Never quits.

Never says no.

Are you ready to go?

I think mom's a little tired.

Okay, honey.

See you tomorrow.

- Forgive me.

Let me turn on a light.

How are you today, Dana?

- Scare me.

Didn't know you were there.
