Matiu, a war veteran who struggles with PTSD and agoraphobia, is unable to leave the safety of his home since  his wife’s passing. Shy student Yvonne from next door, his  only visitor in self-imposed isolation, struggles with her  own mental health. Distraught when her boyfriend leaves  her, she stops taking her medication and soon spirals out  of control. Matiu is the only witness to her descent into  madness, which poses a threat to her life. He must find  the strength within to cross the threshold and save her, or  remain a prisoner of his fear…and his conscience.
