Her family, headed by British actor Stuart Wilson and Alberta Watson as mom, has shifted from place to place and their most recent address is a rural farmhouse that they’ve rented. After they move in they discover the that the owners moved out after their 17-year-old son died in the home. Tamara is shocked at first when she finds out the boy died in her bedroom. But they begin to settle in, and they start making friends with the neighbors and they learn how to milk the cow that comes with the house. However, this somewhat bucolic setting begins to change when Tamara`s mother is diagnosed with tuberculosis and is sent to a sanatorium to recuperate. Without her the family begins to unravel.
