THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DOOR
Maria (Sarah Wayne Callies) and her husband Michael (Jeremy Sisto) are an American couple living in Mumbai, India. They have a young daughter named Lucy (Sofia Rosinsky) and seem like they should be happy -- but that's not the case. Maria is always depressed, because (as we learn in a flashback) they also had a young son named Oliver, and when the car went into the river Maria had to leave Oliver to drown while she saved Lucy.
After Maria almost overdoses on sleeping pills, the housekeeper Piki (Suchitra Pillai) has an unusual solution for her: If Maria goes to a remote temple in the forest and spreads Oliver's ashes at its steps, when night falls she will be able to speak to Oliver through a locked door and say her final goodbyes. But Piki makes Maria promise that no what she hears, she is not under any circumstances to open the door.
