The trailer begins with a man saying, ‘There’s a door in front of you. On the other side is something I could never imagine,’ as we get a glimpse at Harris’ character Justin, laying in bed awake next to her sleeping daughter Molly (Anelle Olaeye).

She’s next seen power-washing her truck, saying, ‘they’re gonna take the house next month, I’m always working and Molly has no one.’

A shooting star – or so we think – is seen as Justin says, ‘I saw something and it freaked me out.’
