The movie begins with a frightened man with a gun and a sleeping child. Trembling and perspiring, the man nervously enters the child's room . He looks around, as if searching for something that he expects to reveal itself in the shadows, then a sudden commotion makes him pull the trigger. The gunfire awakens the child and the man breaks down in tears, saying that he can't do it.
Later, Jessie (Kate Bosworth) and Mark (Thomas Jane) Hobson adopt a new foster child, eight-year-old Cody Morgan (Jacob Tremblay), after their young son Shawn dies suddenly. They soon find out that Cody's dreams become reality, but his nightmares are quite deadly.
On his first night, the couple are amazed as multicolored butterflies flutter across the living room, emitting a strong glow. Mark tries to capture one to show to Cody, as he likes butterflies. However, Cody wakes up and the butterflies disappear. The following day, he goes to school and finds a friend in a girl, and hostility from a mean kid. At home, Cody asks Mark who the kid in the picture was and Mark replies that he was their son, and that his name was Shawn. Cody asks about his whereabouts, to which Jessie replies that he is in heaven, and Cody tells her that that's where his mom is too. That night, the couple see their deceased child and try to hug him. Cody wakes up and Shawn disappears...
