Something's wrong with Sloane.

Disturbed but brilliant playwright Sloane has been summoned back to the home of their ailing grandmother in order to settle the estate. The longer Sloane spends in the labyrinthian decrepit house, the more unsettling their writing becomes, prompting their botanist husband Gwyn to confront the stability of their spouse regurgitating family trauma into their masterpiece. Thrown into the fray, Gwyn’s childhood best friend and realtor Beckham arrives to help the couple bury the hatchet… only to discover there may be more to the house, and to Sloane, that lies beneath the floorboards.

...if the basement's the stomach, what's the basement door?
