An outsider in a small coastal community, 19-year-old Marie lives alone with her parents. She has no one to confide in except Daniel, a young man mesmerised by her wild nature. The townspeople live in fear of her and not least her mother, who is wheelchair bound, suffering from a mysterious illness. When Marie discovers her body changing – long hair growing on her chest and back – she begins searching for answers concerning her family’s hidden past. Something that will have great consequences for herself and her family – and the choices she has to make.
