Sixteen-year-old Ruby Baker and her eleven-year-old brother Rhett lose their parents and Grace, in a car accident, their parents' will is not a recent one but, in accordance with its terms, the children are placed under the guardianship of family neighbors from some years back, the childless couple Erin and Terry Glass, who live in a large glass house in Malibu. There are early indications; the children have to share a room. Ruby comes across unlabeled pharmaceuticals and sees Erin injecting herself, though the couple claims this is for diabetes.
Ruby tries unsuccessfully to get the children's estate and trust fund lawyer Alvin Begleiter to accept her concerns and a visiting social worker is taken in by the couple's assurances. Ruby discovers a postcard from the children's maternal Uncle Jack in the trash, along with a letter from a private school indicating the Glasses unregistered the children and pocketed the $30,000+ tuition money. Ruby finds signs that Terry is in debt to loan sharks, she realizes her new foster parents are after the siblings' $4 million trust fund. Ruby becomes suspicious of her parents' death and discovers evidence of the Glasses' involvement from the online news which states that Ruby's parents had been driving a BMW, one of Terry's cars, instead of their Saab. Moreover, Ruby is expelled from school because her essay, which Terry finished for her to rekindle their relationship, is found to be plagiarised. After being pushed by the loan sharks to pay off his debt, Terry decides to get money from the financial authority, claiming that it is to be used for the children's benefit.
However, his request is denied and he is shown a copy of the un-registration letter from the school faxed to the authority most by Ruby, which raises the question of why he needs more money when he has gotten the tuition money back in his pocket. On, in the middle of the night, Ruby steals Terry's car key, wakes Rhett up, drives off in his Jaguar, attempting to escape, she is stopped by the police who demands to see her driver's license. The kids are recaptured in the car on the road by Terry and Erin who talk the police into letting them go. Back at home, while Ruby attempts to run away again, Terry slaps Ruby, knocking her down, Erin drugs her. Terry tells Erin they must get rid of Ruby. Overcome by guilt and having lost her medical license due to her drug abuse, Erin commits suicide. Terry locks the kids in the basement and sabotages his car, expecting the kids to make another escape attempt and die in it. However, the loan sharks, alerted by Ruby, appear at Terry's house, kill Mr. Begleiter, repossess Terry's Jaguar and Ferrari, insist on taking a ride.
Terry begs them to reconsider, or to at least take another car, the Volvo instead of the Jaguar which he has earlier cut the brake line. Having heard everything, Ruby rushes to stab the tires of the Volvo with a knife, causing the loan sharks to put Terry in the Jaguar and drive away in it; the car goes over a ledge and crashes, killing the loan sharks, but Terry survives. Meanwhile, the children are picked up by a friendly cop; the policeman stops at the scene of the accident and, while investigating, Terry knocks him out. After climbing back up the embankment, armed with a gun, Terry tries to lure Ruby and Rhett toward him. Ruby kills him instantly. In the end and Rhett end up living with their Uncle Jack, who takes them to Chicago, where they visit their parents' grave and embrace each other; the film was released on VHS and DVD on January 2, 2002. A Blu-ray version of the film has yet to be released; the original cut of the film was reported to be 180 minutes long, with 74 minutes worth of footage missing from the theatrical cut.
Kip Pardue played Leelee Sobieski's love interest in the original cut though all of his scenes ended up on the cutting room floor. Of all the deleted footage, only two scenes managed to survive, they are included on the DVD as deleted scenes: After Ruby faints when she finds the cops at her house, she wakes up the next morning believing her parents' accident was only a nightmare. When she heads downstairs, the neighbors are there to tell her. Ruby sits at the table and cries as the camera pans away from her. Ruby and Rhett are seen at their parents' funeral burying their ashes at the cemetery; because of the film's critical and financial failure, the studio had little interest in keeping unused footage and the missing 74 minutes worth of footage has since been considered lost. The film opened at number two in its opening weekend at the US box office, behind Hardball, in which Diane Lane stars; the Glass House grossed $18,150,259 domestically and $5,469,350 overseas, grossing a total of $23,619,609
