  • United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates

In this inventive gothic horror — the feature directorial debut from British actor-turned-filmmaker Romola Garai — the life of a traumatized ex-soldier (Alec Secareanu) takes a turn for the darker when he finds new employment and love. Tomaz, living homeless in London and recovering from an injury sustained at a construction site, is assisted by a kindly nun, Sister Claire (Imelda Staunton), who sets him up with shelter and a job, albeit a strange one: as live-in help in a decaying house, looking after a troubled young woman, Magda (Carla Juri) and her mysterious, ailing mother. As Tomaz starts to fall for Magda, he cannot ignore his suspicion that something sinister is going on — while, in a shifting timeline, the story unearths different demons from his past.
