The trailer begins with Jill trying to get some sleep, but she can’t, as she goes and sits next to her son Noah, who says he’s not tired.

He points out all of the ‘shooting stars,’ but Jill says they’re not shooting stars, but satellites instead.

Jill is then seen driving Noah and her daughter Matilda (Ariana Greenblatt), who closes her eyes in the back seat, and instantly the car completely dies.
