About the film:

Premiered in the FrightFest spotlight of the 2022 Glasgow Film Festival. A terrifying new horror awaits Laura (Christina Ricci) and her seven-year-old son Cody when they flee her abusive ex-husband and try to settle into a new life in an idyllic and remote lakeside farmhouse. Still traumatized, their physical and mental well-being are pushed to the limit as their fragile existence is threatened.

“immense craft and elegant economy to the storytelling”

—Anton Bitel for Little White Lies
