Synopsis

The world has been ravaged by climate change and Rachel is left to fend for herself. Living amid a clutch of disparate communities whose inhabitants she chooses to avoid, she rarely ventures beyond the safety of the storm wall. But when Jez White disturbs her twilight existence, Rachel finds herself in a murky territory somewhere between stalking and being stalked. A story of survival and obsession, this complex psychological portrait framed by compelling drama, it is by turns sensual, poignant and sinister.
