A young, lonely woman is consumed by her deepest and darkest desires after tragedy strikes her quiet country life in the unnerving drama-horror film The Eyes of My Mother, written and directed by first-time feature helmer Nicolas Pesce.

Kika Magalhaes in The Eyes of My Mother

The movie takes place in a family’s secluded farmhouse, where a mother, formerly a surgeon in Portugal, teaches her daughter, Francisca (Kika Magalhaes), to understand anatomy and be unfazed by death. However, one afternoon, a mysterious visitor horrifyingly shatters the idyll of Francisca’s family life, deeply traumatizing the young girl, but also awakening some unique curiosities. Though she clings to her increasingly reticent father, Francisca’s loneliness and scarred nature converge years later when her longing to connect with the world around her takes on a distinctly dark form.
