Nanny on Prime Video: Trailer, Plot, What to Expect, and More Info

The official trailer for the film was posted on Amazon Prime Video on August 30, delivering a glimpse into the nightmare world in which heroine Aisha finds herself. It all started with an emotional conversation between a mother and her kid in which they expressed their love for one another. The video then briefly discussed Aisha’s life once she began working as a babysitter. The second half of the trailer turned darker as Aisha’s American Dream was seen on the verge of being shattered.

Overall, the teaser had a frightening tone that fans of psychological thrillers and horror will certainly like. Prime Video issued the following official description on their YouTube channel alongside the teaser:

The summary continued:

“Haunted by the absence of her young baby, Aisha hopes her new profession will allow her to bring him to the United States, but she is more disturbed by the family’s chaotic home life. As his arrival approaches, a terrible force begins to permeate both her dreams and her reality, endangering the American ideal she has fought so hard to construct.”

The official trailer and blurb promise a compelling, character-driven drama that dives deep into the most challenging aspects of human existence.
