Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Us stars Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o as Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beach-side childhood home with her husband, Gabe (Winston Duke), and their two children for an idyllic summer getaway. After spending a tense beach day with their friends, Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway.

Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgangers of themselves.
