Directed by Polish filmmaker Malgorzata Szumowska (Elles) and written by Catherine S.McMullen, the horror drama The Other Lamb revolves around a girl and born into an all-female cult and her startling way she perceives things.

For her entire life, the cult she was born into has been all that teenage Selah (Raffey Cassidy, Tomorrowland) has known. Along with a band of similarly cloistered young women she lives seemingly unstuck in time, cut off from modern society in a remote forest commune presided over by a man called Shepherd (Michiel Huisman, HBO’s Treme), a controlling, messiah-like figure with a frightening dark side. But when her insular world is rocked by a series of nightmarish visions and disturbing revelations, Selah begins to question everything about her existence including her allegiance to the increasingly dangerous Shepherd.

Awash in images of primal, dreamlike dread, The Other Lamb serves as a provocative fable offering a haunting vision of adolescent awakening and revolt.
