US tells the story of a normal African-American family that returns to the childhood beach home of the family’s mother on vacation. But despite the idyllic setting, matriarch Adelaide Wilson is still haunted by a mysterious traumatic experience from her past. When a group of masked strangers break into the home and hold the family hostage, they have to fight for their own survival. When those strangers take off their masks to reveal that they’re perfect doppelgangers of the family, the Wilsons have to confront their past traumas and examine who they really are.
