A mother's love proves to be an unbreakable and terrifying force in this creepy horror. Five years after they disappeared into the woods with their father, sisters Victoria (Megan Charpentier) and Lily (Isabelle Nelisse) are found by a rescue party sponsored by their uncle Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). They are caked in mud, aggressive and feral. It is decided that Lucas and his girlfriend Annabel (Jessica Chastain) can have custody of them if a welfare clinic can also monitor their behaviour. This displeases the girls' aunt, but Lucas is determined to give them a stable home. Annabel is less enthusiastic as she has never wanted children. As the girls slowly open up to their doctor and new family, Annabel realises that a vengeful and possessive spirit has followed them from the woods.
