Blurs the line between fantasy and reality…an offbeat, beautifully shot thriller."
The Hollywood Reporter

Early one summer morning a young man (Frederick Lau, Victoria 2015), emerges out of the forest with nothing but a duffel bag, looking for work in a small, agricultural town. The hostile locals make finding work challenging for the unkempt but otherwise nice seeming outsider. Only when Lucy (Phantom Thread breakout star Vicky Krieps), the mayor’s daughter, takes a liking to him, does the village change its attitude: he is promptly offered a job as a farmhand and a caravan to live in.

As time passes and he is gradually integrated into the community, it emerges that he’s not the only one with a past to hide. Something sinister is lurking under the immaculate surface of this picturesque community...
