- 9th December
A series of strange child disappearances have plagued a small rural town. A mother fears the unspeakable evil will soon snatch her young daughter. Disconnected from her husband the mother’s paranoia escalates and bizarre and disturbing visions threaten her sanity. Soon she will discover the whole ghastly truth.
A surreal exploration of trauma, abject grief, and destructive self-preservation, constructed like a poetic puzzle, it operates like a dark and dangerous dream, shards of which pierce the reality of the unhinged woman’s existence. Stunningly lensed, with an extraordinary central performance from Georgia Eyers, Steven Milhaljevich’s sophomore feature is a gorgeous purgatory funneling toward a shattering denouement.
