The story of a woman and her stubborn determination to protect her family from the harshness of a life in 1893 Snowy Mountains township. Both a searing revenge tale and a stark revisionist Western, it offers a powerful new interrogation of Australian history and culture through the determination of a woman to ensure her children are given a future filled with hope.
Starring Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Elisabeth Moss, Storm Reid, Aldis Hodge, Harriet Dyer, Amali Golden, Benedict Hardie, Zara Michales, Anthony Brandon Wong and Bianca Pomponio. Directed by Leigh Whannell.

Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister, their childhood friend and his teenage daughter.

But when Cecilia’s abusive ex commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turn lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.
