When Holly was a young little girl, she brutally lost her sister and father at the hands of her deranged mother. Years later, Holly (Clémentine Poidatz) is now married and having a difficult time getting a grip on the difference between reality and dreams...especially when she turns to an enigmatic cult to find help with her past trauma.

Can Evrenol returns with his second feature following the hugely successful Baskin, and again offers us a nightmarish journey into a personal hell. With a blistering central performance, Housewife is overflowing with incredible imagery and an intoxicating atmosphere.
