The main heroine of the picture is 25-year-old Carolineworks in a hospice and dreams of "promotion" - the place of a personal nurse in one of the quietest parts of America. Soon such a place is: a girl gets a place in a suburban house, whose owners are the incompetent dumb old Ben and his suspicious wife Violet.

Caroline had no difficulty in guessing that herThe new ward is afraid to stay in the company of his own wife. The girl feels that this fear is not groundless and begins her own investigation ... Meanwhile, the hostess hands the young nurse a key that can open all the doors in the house. All except one leading to the attic. This forbidden door (because of which constant strange rustling is constantly heard), like a magnet, attracts a young nurse ... In the end, Violet decides to satisfy Caroline's curiosity and tells her the story of the house.

A hundred years have passed since the house of the Devereauxbelonged to a certain banker and his household: his wife and two young children. The household was led by black servants - Aunt Cecil and Uncle Jestiful. The Negroes secretly practiced black magic: not wanting to grow old, Cecil and Jestiphal possessed a spell that allows them, when the time comes, to leave their aged bodies. Looking for gullible, young and healthy people, they made thin "exchanges", renewing their lives again and again.

Meanwhile, Ben makes an attempt to "reach out" to Caroline, unsuccessfully using all available ways to warn the girl of the danger. However, Caroline, keen on her investigation, does not notice these "messages". In addition, for some time now her thoughts have been occupied by Luke, the lawyer of the Devereux couple, who in fact is not what he claims to be.

What else can we say about the film "The key to alldoors "? The plot of the film is fully revealed only to the sounds of the final chords. Looking at the infirm old people, in whose bodies the souls of a young girl and the full power of a man were found, the spectator involuntarily relives the events of the previous episodes of the picture and re-thinks them over again.

The characters of John Hurt, Gina Rowlands and Peter Sarsgaard

If the spouses Devereaux (who, as it turned out inthe end of the film, in fact they were the worst enemies) at the very beginning of the film history, they only aroused pity and sympathy for the audience, then only the main character, whose soul was "imprisoned" in the body of an elderly woman, "causes a sympathy".
