The film follows an Amish family of four who live peacefully in purposeful isolation. The children, Eva (Kiernan Shipka) and Zac (Timothée Chalamet), are able to teleport short distances, provided they can see where they are going. They use their powers for fun as they chase each other around the farm and drop into the lake. Their father, Daniel (Grant Bowler), is a stern disciplinarian who forbids them from using their powers as he believes them unnatural. His wife Elizabeth (Elizabeth Reaser) is extremely frail and he believes her illness is punishment for them using their powers. When Eva and Zac sneak out after dark to play and Elizabeth has a near-fatal seizure, Daniel punishes them by making them face their bedroom walls and nailing their clothes to the wall, preventing them from teleporting away. Despite this, Eva continues using her powers. When she tries to carry an injured bird back to its nest, the bird dies, revealing that they cannot teleport with anyone else. Eva continues to sneak out. When Elizabeth dies, Daniel blames Eva. He knocks her out, covers her head and sets her adrift down the river in a boat. He tells Zac that she passed away. Zac is furious. Eva drifts to a nearby town, where she is found and taken to hospital. Eva struggles in the modern setting. She escapes the hospital, meets some street kids and is taken to a youth home. Eventually, she runs away again and decides to return home to Zac. Meanwhile, Zac is struggling living with Daniel. After a vicious argument, Zac grabs Daniel and teleports, unaware of the consequences. To his horror, Daniel dies shortly afterwards. He buries his father, just as Eva returns. They run and embrace each other. As they mourn their parents, they burn their farm down.
