The tragic loss of their unborn child has driving Kate (Vera Farmiga) and John (Peter Sarsgaard) frustrated. As they already have a child, but their daughter was born mute. Moreover that experience haunts them, so they decided to adopt another child.

At the local orphanage, both John and Kate looked at this girl alone and she is drawing instead of playing with all her housemate. The girl named Esther (Isabelle Fuhrman) and from my opinion, from the name itself, sounds scary. Haha



They try to talk to this girl, Esther. They asked “why don’t you join the party with all the kids” well she replied “there is no need to join the party, I think it is just pointless and a waste of time”. Moreover Esther talks really polite ,full of manner and seemingly angelic little girl.

After heard her reply, Kate and John surprised and thinks the girl is mature on her age and decided to adopt her.


Time goes by, at first Esther and their child were mixed around and gets along until one day Katie felt something is wrong with Esther. Firstly starts from strange behavior of Esther at school complained by her teacher. Secondly, their child acts weirdly at home ever since Esther presence.

So Kate decided to look and research on Esther’s past. Kate calls Sister Abigail in the orphanage and the sister advises Kate that Esther had been involved in many troubles in the past. When Sister Abigail visits Kate, Esther peek and listen to their conversation from distance. After Sister Abigail leave Kate’s house, Esther go after Sister Abigail and stopped Sister Abigail’s car and kill her on the spot with a hammer.

When Kate goes further in the investigation of the past of Esther, she contacts the Saarne Institute, a mental hospital in Estonia, and discovers that the girl is not who she tells she is. Esther has some kind of dwarf problem. She might looks like children, but she is actually an adult and a murderer.

I guess this movie as unexpected ending.. very nice story line and twist and I guess this movie is not suitable for those people want to adopt child haha as they will definitely scared.
