The Girl Next Door unfolds in a quiet suburban town in the summer of 1958. 12-year old David Moran discovers that his next-door neighbors, the Chandlers, have adopted two girls; Megan and her younger sister Susan, recently orphaned in a terrible car crash, leaving them in the care of their mentally unstable aunt Ruth. David befriends the older of the two girls, and all seems well at first. However, he begins to notice that the girls presence seems to provoke inexplicable jealousy and resentment from their aunt. Ruth’s hostility towards the two girls soon escalates from verbal insults to physical abuse, involving her three young sons, the neighborhood children, and 12-year-old David whose life will be changed forever. Called, in a courtroom, "the most terrible crime ever committed in the state of Indiana" the film details the fatal cycle of abuse the girls had to endure.
