About the film:

Winner of the Golden Leopard for Best First Film at the 2021 Locarno Film Festival. After a double mastectomy, Veronica Ghent goes to a healing retreat in rural Scotland with her young nurse Desi. There, she discovers that the process of such surgery opens up questions about her very existence, leading her to start to question and confront past traumas. The two develop an unlikely bond as mysterious forces give Veronica the power to enact revenge within her dreams.

“Slyly reclaiming the terminology and the mythology of witchcraft for the traumatized female survivors of male predation.”

—Jessica Kiang for Variety
