Based on Stephen King’s novel, an adult game goes wrong between a married couple, the titular Gerald (Greenwood) and Jessie (Gugino). Jessie is left stranded by herself in a remote retreat, and what started off as a game becomes a fight for survival. Jessie must confront her own demons and ghosts from her past - those lurking within her mind and the shadows of her empty house.
