Released in limited theaters and on digital platforms earlier this year, “Come Back to Me” finds centers on Sarah (Walder) and Josh McLaren (Passmore), a young married couple living in suburban Las Vegas. Shortly after a car accident, Sarah begins to suffer a series of disturbing memory lapses and frequent blackouts that seem to be increasing in intensity.

As her marriage and world begin to fall apart, she makes a desperate attempt to find the truth by planting a hidden camera in her home.
What Sarah discovers is both horrific and life altering and involves a dark secret about her neighbor Dale (Keyes) that proves to be even more far-reaching than anyone could imagine.
