Set in a nightmarish small town, When You Close Your Eyes follows a vulnerable group of young women dying to tie new strings. As they struggle to squeeze what they think they want out of life, the evil is revealed, and worlds turn upside down in a cacophony of dreams, screaming, purring, and betrayal. (
