Hunted by mysterious forces, a young woman (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) with supernatural abilities must go on the run when her powers are discovered. With nowhere else to go, she flees back to her family and the farmhouse she abandoned long ago. There, while being pursued by the local Sheriff (David Strathairn), she begins to mend the broken relationships with her mother (Lorraine Toussaint) and daughter (Saniyya Sidney) and learns that the power she needed was inside her all along.

…a dreamlike dystopian drama; a warm celebration of family and female power; a teasing hint of superhero-origin story… an expressive allegory for a lineage of powerful black women whose strength, unleashed, could literally shake the earth.” – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
