The Complex

Synopsis

Early McEwan meets late Ballard in a waking nightmare of the near future.

Gabrielle Hunter, her husband Leo and son Stefan drive to a remote luxury retreat at the invitation of new client Art Fisher. Gabrielle is struggling to grieve the death of her father. As they approach the retreat, they hit and kill a deer, but discover it was already dying from a bullet wound. Soon everything becomes a waking nightmare.

What is Art’s real motive for inviting them? Who is killing the animals in the woods? And why does nature seem broken?
