"The Boy" Plot Summary.

In search of a fresh start away from a troubled past, a young American woman seeks refuge in an isolated English village, only to find herself trapped in a waking nightmare in THE BOY.

When Greta (Lauren Cohan) takes a job as a nanny she is shocked to discover that she has been hired by a strange elderly couple to care for Brahms, a life-sized doll that they treat like a real child. A stand-in for the son they lost tragically 20 years earlier, Brahms comes with a lengthy list of rules that Greta is warned to follow to the letter.

Greta ignores the rules and begins a tentative flirtation with handsome local deliveryman Malcolm (Rupert Evans). That is, until a series of disturbing and inexplicable events convinces her that supernatural forces are at work.
