A Father’s Nightmare Plot
A Father’s Nightmare is a follow up to A Mother’s Nightmare. Coping from the recent death of his wife, Matt’s daughter, Lisa, goes off to college, where she becomes friends with her older and mature roommate, Vanessa.
Vanessa tries to manipulate Lisa at every turn and Lisa’s life goes into a downward spiral. Because of Vanessa’s influence, Matt and Lisa grow apart from each other.
Lisa becomes more dependent on Vanessa, and Matt is not happy about it. He is trying to find out what exactly is going on with his daughter, but things begin to spiral.

Matt is seen talking to somebody and saying that Vanessa controls Lisa. In fact, Vanessa even gets Lisa into the habit of taking pills. But can Matt save his daughter before it’s too late?
