In 1988, Lisa and Andy Wyrick move to a new home in a quiet suburb of Atlanta. Heidi, the Wyrick’s four-year-old daughter, loves playing in the grassy yard. Heidi tells her mother she even has a new friend—an elderly man named Mr. Gordy. Concerned, Lisa and Andy search the neighborhood for Heidi’s new “friend”. They find nothing. A few days later, Heidi announces she has another new friend: a blood covered man named Con. Lisa panics, but again there is nobody in the yard except Heidi.
