Hidden away from civilisation, an all-female cult serves its spiritual leader, a man known as Shepherd (Michiel Huisman). Selah (Raffey Cassidy) has grown into a teenager as part of this self-sufficient community, but as she approaches adulthood, pervasive doubts about her faith inspire dark, bloody visions. As the Shepherd leads his flock on a journey to find a new paradisal retreat, Selah is shocked to learn what her role in the group is to become. Written by fantasy author Catherine S McMullen, Małgorzata Szumowska’s (Body, CFF 2015; Mug, CFF 2018) unsettling English-language debut is a haunting, visionary drama and a timely rage against patriarchy.
