Logline: 
When a freak accident sends a six-year-old to her death and back again, the people closest to her slowly come to the realization that what has returned isn't the same sweet child they lost.
Synopsis/Details: 

Things are finally looking up for DANI (mid 30s). After suffering the devastating loss of her husband, she struggles to put the pieces of her life back together for the sake of her daughter, EVA (6). Now, with a new man by her side, ALEX (mid 20s), her life seems to be taking on some semblance of normalcy.

On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, Dani, Alex and Eva attend a birthday party for LAUREN (6), the daughter of Dani’s best friend, JULIET (40s). Eva is stung by a bee and suffers a life-threatening allergic reaction. In the emergency room, Dani watches fearfully as her precious daughter clings to life.

Eva’s heart monitor flatlines. Hospital staff try heroically to resuscitate her, but all efforts fail. Dani collapses in a heap on the floor, all hope lost. Then, just as suddenly as it stopped, Eva’s heart begins to beat again.

Days later, Dani and Alex take Eva home from the hospital and attempt to return to their normal lives, but they soon realize that things may never be normal again. Eva seems to have changed since her near-death experience. She is no longer the vibrant, charismatic child she used to be. The new Eva is sullen, disobedient and has an alarming disregard for human life.

As the child’s mother, Dani attempts to turn a blind eye to the disturbing changes in Eva, attributing it to the trauma she had experienced. However, she is only able to ignore it for so long before the people around them start dying under unusual circumstances.

Soon there is no denying it. Eva is not Eva any more. Something evil has taken over her body in the few minutes as she passed between life and death. With this grim reality flooding her thoughts, Dani faces a decision no mother should have to make –- allow Eva’s murderous rage to continue or eliminate the threat.
