With the aid of a mind-altering parasite, a thief hypnotises Kris (Amy Seimetz) into handing over all she owns. Her money, her home, everything. While struggling to come to terms with the aftermath, she meets Jeff (Shane Carruth), whose life has been ruined by the same ordeal. As they try to piece together what’s happened, their lives become irrevocably entwined – and the role of the parasite becomes ever more complex and mysterious…

Shane Carruth, US 2013, 96mins

“Baffling, intoxicating, elegant, Shane Carruth’s long-overdue follow-up to Primer is among the year’s best”
Little White Lies

“The most visually imaginative American film since David Lynch’s Eraserhead
Time Out

“A perfectly judged, strikingly beautiful film, but also a lunatic enterprise which invites – even welcomes – befuddlement as much as wonder. A true original”
-Kim Newman, Empire

“My immediate desire when it ended was to stay in my seat and watch it all the way through again”
