When Ellie returns to her childhood home, heavily pregnant, she is reunited with her estranged mother, Ivy. Following years of separation, their initial awkward interactions gradually fall into the familiar dynamics of previous years. But the old house conjures disturbing memories for Ellie who is haunted by her dead sister, Cara. As Ellie grows more erratic and confused, Ivy tries to comfort her and contain her increasingly strange behaviour. When past trauma and the anxiety over her unborn child finally sends Ellie over the edge, she discovers the hidden, horrifying reality of her family that she never expected.
FREED IN DEED filmmaker Mahaffy has expertly crafted a truly haunting film, with an emotional heart and shocking conclusion. New Zealand has a true genre classic on its hands. Not only do we have the New Zealand Premiere for this screening, but Jake Mahaffy will be at Alice for a special Q&A afterwards!
