In the presence of the film crew

Narvel Roth is the meticulous horticulturist of Gracewood Gardens. He is as much devoted to tending the grounds of this beautiful and historic estate as he is to pandering to his employer, the wealthy dowager Mrs Haverhill. Chaos enters Narvel’s spartan existence, however, when Mrs Haverhill demands he take on her wayward and troubled great-niece Maya as a new apprentice— unlocking dark secrets from a buried violent past that threaten them all.
