The Irish Midlands, 1862: a young girl stops eating but remains miraculously alive and well. English nurse Lib Wright (Florence Pugh) is brought to a tiny village to observe eleven-year old Anna O’Donnell. Tourists and pilgrims mass to witness the girl who is said to have survived without food for months. Is the village harboring a saint “surviving on manna from heaven” or are there more ominous motives at work?

Official selection: Telluride Film Festival
