In rural England 1865, a woman (Florence Pugh) is stifled by her arranged and loveless marriage to a bitter man twice her age, whose family is cold and unforgiving.

When her husband embarks a long trip she escapes her confinement to the house and embarks on a passionate affair with a young worker on her husband’s estate — resulting in a force unleashed inside her so powerful that she will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Nothing.
