Years after escaping the cult in which they were raised, brothers Justin and Aaron (played by the directors) live a quiet life. When they receive a strange message from their former ‘family’ they’re compelled to go back to their hometown to investigate. What they find will upturn their whole sense of reality. Acclaimed directors Benson and Moorhead (Spring) return with another hybrid piece of raging intensity.
As with their previous work, Benson and Moorhead expertly fuse ambitious genre storytelling with intricate human insight, keeping the film emotionally grounded even as its increasingly twisted timeframes and tricksy narratives unfold.
