He also doesn't pay any attention to his daughter, who has a different boyfriend every week. He is also oblivious to the fact that his young son is getting bullied at school.

His wife, Gloria feels unloved and neglected, not to mention sexually frustrated. She prays every night for salvation. Then, one day her prayers are answered in the form of Grace, a seemingly sweet old lady, who is hired as the housekeeper. Except, there's one problem...she is a stark raving mad psychopathic killer.
