What Lies Beneath is the story of Dr. Norman Spencer (Harrison Ford), a university research scientist, and his wife Claire (Michelle Pfeiffer), a retired concert cellist who live in an isolated villa on a lake shore in Vermont. A year ago Claire was involved in a serious accident and spends most of her time at their home.

Their idyllic marriage soon starts falling apart when the sensitive Claire reports that she has been feeling a strange presence around the house that has her on edge. Claire begins hearing faint voices and experiencing some strange occurrences including seeing the face of a young woman in water. Convinced that their home is inhabited by a supernatural entity, Norman thinks it is her imagination. Troubled, Claire begins seeing a therapist who advises her to try to contact the ghost. Enlisting the help of her best friend, Jody (Diana Scarwid), and a Ouija board, Claire seeks to find out the truth of What Lies Beneath.
