A middle-aged couple, Mr and Mrs Mackey, invite a
younger couple, Susan and Larry, to the suburban Boston home where
they are employed to look after the elderly, senile Cissie. They
persuade a reluctant Susan to dress up as Veronica,
Cissie's dead sister, in an effort to bring Cissie a sense of
closure. The year is 1973, but Cissie believes it to be 1935.
Having presented initially as kindly and gentle, once Susan is
dressed as Veronica, the older couple become sinister and
threatening. They treat her as if she were indeed Veronica, insist
that the year is 1935 and that they are her parents and accuse her
of murdering Cissie after she discovered Veronica's incestuous
relationship with her younger brother. Susan protests, but they
imprison her in Veronica's Room and the older couple call in the
family doctor to declare her insane. The doctor arrives and bears
an uncanny resemblance to Larry . .
