The Gift

Not Every Gift Is Welcome.
  • It's your turn to come down the chimney this year!

A young married couple's life is going just as planned until a chance encounter with an acquaintance from high school sends their world into a harrowing tailspin. The man does not recognize his friend at first, but after a seemingly coincidental series of encounters and mysterious gifts prove troubling, a horrifying secret from their past is uncovered after nearly 20 years. As the wife learns the unsettling truth about what happened between the two men, she starts to question: how well do we really know the people closest to us, and are past bygones ever really bygones?
