Plot Summary: An aging film star retreats to the Scottish countryside with her nurse to recover from surgery. While there, mysterious forces of revenge emerge from the land where witches were burned.

Poster - Title Card rating: notes: Absolutely gorgeous cinematography and music, and Alice Krige gives a riveting performance. A witchy revenge story of reclaiming feminine power and allyship by communing with nature and the buried history of similarly abused women. Story-wise, there's not much to it, but it's continuously evocative, like watching a dream within a dream become a beautiful awakening.

Along with co-writer Kitty Percy, Colbert has crafted a rich tale centered on an intergenerational relationship between two women—Veronica and Desi—who slowly thaw to one another as Desi steps into her caretaking role, and Veronica steps into her own power. Desi realizes there is something not at all right about what is going on at this retreat, and wants to get her charge out of there as quickly as possible. The most interesting thing, though, is that Veronica—when faced with the horrors of the past (her own and womankind's, in general), she is strengthened, she is not at all afraid. Her reckoning with the past is long overdue.
