After an intense party, 17-year-old Tina begins having severe nightmares. From this point forward she is haunted daily by a profoundly hideous creature. Her parents do not believe her story.
The only one with whom she talks about her fears is her psychiatrist. He encourages her to get in touch with the creature. At first Tina refuses to, but after she overhears her parents’ plans to put her in a mental hospital, she overcomes her fear and begins talking to the creature.
Out of fear of being taken for a freak by her friends and family, she hides the creature in her room. As time goes on, a trusting relationship develops between them and by dealing with the creature, Tina learns more about her true self. However, before long, her parents and eventually her friends discover the creature with their own eyes…
