A nominee for the Platform prize at the 2017 Festival, the debut film by Michael Pearce is a riveting, slow-burning thriller about the limits of love and the darkness inside us. Yearning to escape from her stifling home life, Moll (2017 TIFF Rising Star Jessie Buckley), the black sheep of an upper-crust family on the isle of Jersey, impulsively moves in with Pascal (Johnny Flynn), a rugged hunter with a mysterious past. When a local girl goes missing following a string of murders, Moll must decide what to trust: her own instincts, or the mysterious man with whom she has made a home.
