Francesco is taking his partner Emma and Sofia, her daughter, for the first time to meet her mother Teresa, who lives in an ancient villa surrounded by centuries-old olive trees. The woman is said to be a healer because she is able to perform magical rites on people.
One night Sofia is stung in her sleep by a tarantula, from this moment Emma and her daughter will witness increasingly disturbing events. So while the child quickly manifests serious signs of illness and possession, Emma begins to trust no one.
In a dizzying crescendo of tension, Emma will try to escape even though the bond between her and her daughter now seems unbreakable.
