The Woman in streaming. The movie opens with the feral Woman (Pollyanna McIntosh) circling what appears to be her child. A wolf, apparently tamed by the feral Woman, circles the infant as well but does it no harm. Although it is not referenced in the film, the Woman is the last remaining member of a cannibalistic tribe that has roamed the north-east coast for decades (as seen in the 2009 film Offspring). Chris Cleek (Sean Bridgers) is a country lawyer at a local barbecue with his family. The oldest daughter Peggy (Lauren Ashley Carter) sits off to the side, upset. Their only son Brian Cleek (Zach Rand) watches as a couple boys abuse and push a small girl into a corner, making no effort to save her. While out hunting, Chris happens upon the Woman, who is bathing. He returns with a net in an effort to capture her. He knocks her out and returns home with her, restrains her in a cellar, and directs his family to participate in "civilizing" her. Over the following days, it is revealed that the family is dysfunctional. Brian enjoys causing pain to others, Peggy is withdrawn and afraid of her father and Chris gives the appearance of a smart, charming man. Chris' first attempt to approach the woman results in her biting off and swallowing the end of his ring finger. Peggy and his wife Belle (Angela Bettis) protest and the youngest daughter Darlin (Shyla Molhusen) attempts to befriend the imprisoned woman. Chris' will prevails and he orchestrates a violent series of civilizing measures. Chris bathes the Woman with boiling hot water and later decides to bathe her with a high pressure power washer. Belle watches in horror but Peggy rushes to the Woman's aid and turns off the washer. Peggy is forced into the house while Belle and Chris move the woman back into the cellar. Later, Chris rapes the Woman while Brian secretly observes. It is implied throughout the film that Chris may have raped his daughter too, as he put a candle next to the woman after the rape, just as he had done with Peggy. The next day, Brian also violates the woman and is caught by Peggy. Belle, unable to stand it anymore, announces her intention to leave Chris and take their two daughters but not their "rapist" son. Chris knocks Belle unconscious just before Peggy's teacher Ms. Raton (Carlee Baker) rings the doorbell. Ms. Raton tells Chris that she believes Peggy is pregnant. He becomes angry, knowing that she will somehow expose the family's secret and hits her. He and Brian tie her hands and drag her to the barn where he keeps German Shepherds. Peggy protests, but Chris subjects her to a vicious verbal assault.
