Lisa (Kathryn Newton) is a teenage outcast in 1989 who is dealing with a new family situation when her father remarries, after her mother was brutally murdered by a notorious serial killer. Altered by those circumstances, Lisa spends time at a local cemetery, creating fantasies involving an 1800s-era teen boy who died young, which freaks out her step sister Taffy (Liza Soberano) and step Mom Janet (Carla Gugino). When a intense electrical storm brings to life her cemetery lover (Cole Sprouse), he finds his way to Lisa and changes her world.
