Logline: 
After a young girl dies in a drowning accident, her ghost begins appearing to those who loved her most, threatening to unearth a secret they thought was buried for good.
Synopsis/Details: 

BREE (30s) is a lonely housewife who yearns for a family. After numerous years of infertility, having children of her own seems like a dream more than reality. She cares for five-year-old CHELSEA, the daughter of her best friend GABE (30s) and his wife LISA (30s), while secretly pining for what they have: a loving marriage and a beautiful child. Instead, she has VINCE (30s), her abusive workaholic husband who, unbeknownst to her, has been unfailthful.

As the friends busily prepare for Chelsea’s 5th birthday party, Gabe neglects to lock a gate leading to their swimming pool. In all the hustle and bustle, Chelsea is able to slip out of the house and fall into the pool. When her body is discovered by Bree, both couples lives are immediately ripped apart.

Not long after Chelsea’s death, Bree receives a chilling visit from the child’s ghostly apparition. Chelsea knows a secret, something Bree thought she had long since buried; something she knows will not only destroy what little is left of her marriage, but quite possibly her relationship with Gabe as well.

As Chelsea’s visits become more frequent and haunting, Bree starts to lose her grip on reality and plunges perilously into a deep depression. Despite Chelsea’s urging, Bree is determined to keep her secret, even if it means silencing the one person that has the power to bring her deception to light.

“Guilt” is a tense, gripping and emotional journey through the lives of four people destroyed by tragedy, secrets and lies
