Everyone in Justine’s family is a vet and a vegetarian. At 16, she’s a brilliant and promising student, but when she starts at veterinary school she enters a decadent, merciless and dangerously seductive world. During the first week of hazing rituals, desperate to fit in whatever the cost, she strays from her family principles when she eats raw meat for the first time. Justine will soon face the terrible and unexpected consequences of her actions as her true self begins to emerge.
From one of Variety's top directors to watch in 2017 comes a touching, viscerally human and tense coming-of-age story streaked with dark humour, brutality and gore.
