After moving into a new home with her husband, Emma begins to fear that a supernatural force in the house is putting their family in danger. This feeling intensifies after the birth of her child - her husband has become a stranger, her baby won't stop crying, and a looming darkness threatens to destroy their idyllic life. Afraid of her own family, alone in her new home and growing more desperate every day, Emma will protect her child-no matter the cost. Celine Loup takes a haunting look at the isolation of postpartum depression, exploring the very real fears associated with motherhood in this graphic novella of horror and suspense.
