After being nominated for the Michael Powell Award in 2019 with The Black Forest, Ruth Platt returns to EIFF with a timeless, emotionally led ghost story.
The rambling vicarage where ten-year-old Leah lives, is a magnet for homeless and needy parishioners, who monopolise her mother’s time. Overlooked by her busy parents, bullied by her older sister, lonely child Leah, is delighted when she makes a new friend. But when she is talked into taking something which doesn’t belong to her, she sets off a train of events which may make her worst nightmares come true. Tension and dread underpin this atmospheric horror story which will further build Platt’s profile as a skilful genre film maker to watch.
