About the film:
Official Selection of Fantastic Fest, BFI London, and Sitges Film Festival
An unholy alliance between two damaged souls leads them on a disturbing descent into the depraved realms of black magic. Sophia is a grieving mother desperate to make contact with her murdered son. Joseph is an anti-social, alcoholic expert in the occult who reluctantly agrees to help her. Holed up in a remote house amidst the desolate wilds of Northern Wales, the two embark on a grueling six-month series of dark rituals that will push them both to the physical and psychological breaking point.
“sublime, uncanny and in the end deeply moving – and there is nothing else out there remotely like it.”
– Anton Bitel for Sight & Sound
