In the preview, a woman (Buckley) goes with her boyfriend, Jake (Plemons), to meet his parents (Collette and Thewlis) for the first time. She is thinking about ending her relationship with Jake.

She begins to have strange experiences at Jake's parents' house, including a dog that won't stop shaking and seeing a childhood photo of herself on the wall.

"There's just something profoundly wrong here," Buckley narrates. "I feel like I was seeing them as they were, seeing them as they will be, seeing them after they're gone."

Her surreal experiences continue after she and Jake leave the house and make a detour.

"People like to think of themselves as points moving through time, but I think it's the opposite. We're stationary and time passes through us, blowing like cold wind," she says.

Netflix previously shared a poster for I'm Thinking of Ending Things that shows the character at dinner at Jake's parents' house.
