Melanie Thomas (Anna Margaret Hollyman) is an American sculptor obsessed with the disappearance of a young girl. When she incorporates the story into her art, she receives a mysterious invitation to present her new work in the small Irish town where the disappearance occurred. But things are not what they seem, and soon, Melanie must confront the unforeseen consequences of her visit. Michael Tully’s DON’T LEAVE HOME is a strange, beautiful contemporary thriller that draws upon its gothic cinematic influences to spin a story filled with surprises, twists, and an unsettling sense of dread.
