When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter’s family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited. Making his feature debut, writer-director Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell.

In 1976, two respected scientists, BEN MORIN and his wife CATHERINE O’NEAL, quit their jobs at the university to conduct an experiment they think will revolutionize our understanding of human identity. The project aims to raise three children contrarily to their genetic predispositions to prove the ultimate power of nurture over nature. They want to prove that everyone has the same potential to become anything. MAYA, a newborn girl adopted from two feebleminded parents, is raised to be smart, while MAURICE, a newborn boy adopted from two anger-prone parents, is raised to be a pacifist. Finally, their own biological son LUKE, who comes from a long lineage of scientific brains, is raised to become a revered artist. The experiment will reveal little scientific truth, but rather lead Ben and Catherine to discover the true value of family.

As a fiercely independent and brilliant young woman with autism, Wendy longs to leave the regimen of her group home, and return to life with her sister’s family and their new baby. But first she must prove herself. As a lover of all-things-Star Trek, Wendy writes fantasy stories in her free time.

In order to meet the deadline, Wendy must travel hundreds of miles outside her protected boundaries to submit her script in person.

With her little dog Pete in her purse and a few dollars in her pocket, Wendy boldly goes where she has never gone before. And with her no-nonsense therapist and big sister Audrey following close behind; Wendy, with the help of some colorful friends she meets along the way; must learn how to follow her dream and find her place in a world she hopes will accept her ….
