The film is a prequel to Orphan, taking place in 2007 instead of 2009 as the original did. It also revolves around the tale of Esther/Leena, who was adopted into an American family before murdering them all, which Kate Coleman only fleetingly learned about. Tricia Albright, Allen Albright, and Gunnar Albright made up the Albright family in question. Their daughter, Esther, was reported missing a few years back. Since Leena’s hypopituitarism prevented her from seeming to be older than 10 to 12 years, she tried to steal the girl’s identity and pose as her.
