One night with Eliza Dushku can solve all of your problems, physically and spiritually. That’s the lesson Narnia star Ben Barnes learns in the trailer for Suri Krishnamma’s Locked In, a thriller about… well, I’m not exactly sure what it’s about. And like me, Meredith at io9 is positing that the answers lie in Ms. Dushku’s naughty bits: “We’re still not sure what Lester from The Wire is doing in it, but he seems to be some sort of spiritual guide that ferries spirits through Eliza’s downstairs parts?”

Alas, the answers are not plainly written on her zipper or the wall. The film’s synopsis reveals that it’s about a guy who gives up a very cushy life, only to have his daughter fall into a strange coma after a terrible car accident. And as his life continues its downward spiral (and he begins boning that hot gal from the Dollhouse), his daughter begins communicating with him. Here’s the synopsis from IMDB. See if you can do any better:

The story moves through the lives of two fragile yet determined people and maps a private geography of love, loss and ultimate redemption. Josh leaves his advertising career at its peak, everyone wants either to be him or to have him. Then he walks away from it all, the money, recognition and the life. A car accident will leave his daughter in a strange coma and when everyone has given up she starts communicating with him, or is he going mad?

Is that Empire Records star Johnny Whitworth? Why yes it is.
