The synopsis: “HOUSE OF ABRAHAM tells the story of Dee [Henstridge], a desperate woman who arrives at the ‘House of Abraham’ to end her life with the help of Abraham [Hassel], who leads weekend retreats for those looking to bid a permanent farewell to the world. As the weekend progresses, it soon becomes clear Dee has a secret agenda that throws the weekend and its participants into unexpected and sinister chaos. Shaye plays Beatrice, Abraham’s trusted partner in hosting the retreats, a woman who’s also hiding her own secrets.”
