1974. Two sisters locked in arrested development play out incestuous games that become steadily more depraved before ending in tragedy
Celeste is innocent at eighteen and never left home. Meryl left home at fifteen and had a tough run, addicted to prescription medication and men who couldn’t begin to entertain her. Fresh out of rehab, she moves back home to share a childhood room with the little sister she never really knew. She begins to test boundaries, break them, and eventually act out violent taboo fantasies with Celeste while their mother hosts endless dinner parties downstairs.
