Her parents Diane (Monica Staggs) and Steve (Nicholas Brendon) are attempting everything they can to prevent her from joining the mysterious TV people. However everything is put at stake as a series of strange hauntings come down on their suburban lives:

First the chairs in their kitchen revolve around the room and stack by themselves by the ghost. Second their front yard opens up and leaves a massive grave in their front pasture. The hauntings continue on with a oak tree sprouting to life in attempt to engulf their son Robbie (Charlie Tahan) as well as a possessed maniacal clown toy.
