Inspired by the Gothic novels of the Brontës, Danishka Esterhazy’s dark and captivating first feature is a suspenseful drama unfolding on a bleak Canadian prairie landscape in the 19th century. Maggie McGregor (Sara Canning) and her sister Rose (Ferron Guerreiro) have no remaining family to help with the physical farm labour and generate income. Maggie is a stoic, dutiful young woman who has spent her youth taking care of Rose, while providing for the household by living off the land. Rose is a friendly, vivacious and somewhat naive 14-year-old, not yet hardened by the challenges of their circumstances. The two sisters’ lives are forever changed when a mysterious and charming man named David Latouche (Mathieu Bourguet) arrives at their isolated farm. As the mesmerizing French-Canadian trapper wins the sisters over and is permitted to stay, questions emerge about his past and his intentions.
