A dysfunctional L.A. family hires a mysterious babysitter who changes their lives.

Ray Longway, a moody teenager, is a pawn in his parents' bitter divorce. His mother, a struggling actress who married rich, has grown accustomed to their cushy L.A. lifestyle but now, this lifestyle is threatened and depends solely on Ray’s custody decision. The family hires a Wiccan-practicing babysitter, Anjelika, who quickly fills the voids in everyones lives. After sharing a joint one night, Ray and Anjelika form a deep bond that unfolds into something strange and profound -- but their entanglement is poised to jeopardize Ray's mother's master plan. Babysitter features breakout performances by Max Burkholder (Ray), Daniele Watts (Anjelika) and is Morgan Krantz’ feature directorial debut.
