After the sudden death of Emily’s parents, eccentric carnivorous plant-loving Aunt Myrtle moves in to care for her and her brother. In an act of retaliation, Emily douses her plants in embalming fluid and accidentally creates a botanical portal to a world in which her parents are still alive. Torn between staying with them and returning to life with Myrtle, it quickly becomes apparent that her parents aren’t who they seemed. As Emily attempts to escape, she runs into her brother and must convince him to return to the real world with her before the portal closes once and for all.
