Following his discovery of the body of his wife in a bathtub after her suicide, Dr. David Callaway (Robert De Niro), a psychologist working in New York City, decides to move with his daughter Emily (Dakota Fanning) to upstate New York. There, Emily befriends a mysterious imaginary friend who wishes to be named “Charlie”. Her friendship with Charlie begins to disturb David when he discovers their cat dead in the bathtub. Charlie is apparently responsible for this horrific act, according to Emily. David also has recurring nightmares at a specific time of the night (2:06) where, in the dream, he keeps re-living the New Year’s Eve party that occurred the night before his wife died. When a family friend, Katherine (Famke Janssen) comes to visit David and Emily, Emily reveals that she and Charlie are getting closer and have a mutual desire to upset her father. Soon they meet a man and a woman who are their neighbors. David catches the husband talking to Emily in their back yard and is initially wary of his unusual interest in Emily. He later discovers that the reason for this was that the couple had a daughter who recently died from cancer. In a photo, it’s revealed she looks exactly like Emily.
