Her two children both suffer from a rare photosensitivity disease that renders them extremely vulnerable to sunlight, prompting the rule of having only one door open in the house at a time.

"For Moncho, it's an idyllic year: he starts school; he has a wonderful teacher; he makes a friend in Roque; he begins to figure out some of the mysteries of Eros; and, with his older brother, a budding saxophone player, he makes a trip with the band from their town in Galicia. But it's also the year that the Spanish Republic comes under fire from Fascist rebels. Moncho's father is a Republican as is the aging teacher, Don Gregorio. As sides are drawn and power falls clearly to one side, the forces of fear, violence, and betrayal alter profoundly what should be the pleasure of coming of age" (jhailey@hotmail.com, IMDb)

Die Kanalinsel Jersey im Jahr 1945. Die letzte Schlacht des Zweiten Weltkriegs ist geschlagen, doch der Ehemann von Grace (NICOLE KIDMAN) ist nicht von der Front zurückgekehrt. Isoliert und einsam lebt die strenggläubige Frau in einem unheimlichen viktorianischen Anwesen, wo sie ihre beiden Kinder nach strikten religiösen Prinzipien erzieht. Anne (ALAKINA MANN) und Nicholas (JAMES BENTLEY) sind mit einer fürchterlichen Krankheit geschlagen: Sie können niemals direktem Sonnenlicht ausgesetzt werden. Als drei neue Bedienstete bei Grace vorstellig werden, gelten für sie daher drei Regeln, die stets sklavisch genau befolgt werden müssen: Immer muss das Haus in Halbdunkel getaucht sein. Immer müssen alle Vorhänge zugezogen sein. Immer muss die letzte Tür geschlossen und verriegelt werden, bevor die nächste geöffnet werden darf. Doch die rigide Ordnung von Grace wird nachhaltig erschüttert. Grace und die Kinder werden mit Wahrheiten konfrontiert, die sie sich niemals hätten träumen lassen. Doch keine Sorge - DIE ANDEREN werden sich darum kümmern ... Im Bann des Unheimlichen: In der Tradition von Gänsehautklassikern wie SHINING oder THE SIXTH SENSE erweckt der spanische Regie-Shootingstar Alejandro Amenabar das Genre des psychologischen Gruselschockers perfekt und meisterlich zu neuem Leben.
