Barbara Hershey plays 70-year old Judith Albright, who suffers a stroke that impairs her ability to tend to herself. She moves into Golden Sun Manor, a top-tier assisted-living facility. As Judith settles into her new environment, she develops friendships with other elderly residents like Roland, played by Bruce Davison. While the assisted living facility appears innocuous at first, Judith soon realizes there’s a malevolent presence that preys upon the vulnerable residents of a pleasant nursing home. Furthering her suspicions is when other residents begin to die suspiciously.


Judith tries to warn her friends and even confides in her grandson Josh (Nicholas Alexander), who feels his grandmother is succumbing to dementia. Considering no one will believe her, Judith sets out to escape The Manor rather than become its next victim.


The Manor costars Jill Larson, Fran Bennett and Katie Amanda Keane. The film's executive producers are Jason Blum, Jeremy Gold, Marci Wiseman, Lisa Bruce, Richard J Bosner, and Sandy King with writer-director Axelle Carolyn.
