When women from an ultra-religious community are subject to a series of brutal sexual assaults, they are convinced that the attacks are the work of spirits or perhaps the devil himself. But realising it is in fact men from their own community who are responsible, eight women are elected to wrestle with the decision of whether to stay or leave.
A gripping, brilliantly acted and powerful testament to sisterhood and strength in numbers, with a stellar cast, that rightly deserves its Best Picture nomination at this year's Academy Awards.
