The story takes place in a small Nebraskan town, where a quiet bank clerk's (Cillian Murphy) life is shattered by a train crashing into his backyard revealing a woman no one knew lived there.

Lucas will play his friend and a local cop, Pullman is cast as his supervisor and Sarandon will portray the mayor's wife, who runs the local women's shelter. Page will play a woman from the clerk's past who might hold the secret to the mystery woman.

Michael Lander will direct from a script he co-wrote with Ryan Roy. Shooting begins this month in Iowa.
