An epic thriller set in the old west. A triumphant tale of powerful womanhood and resistance against a violent past that refuses to fade.

Liz (Dakota Fanning) is a mute young woman who lives together with her husband and two children. She is a midwife and communicates through sign language, sometimes assisted by her daughter. Her relationship with her 14 year old son could be better, but otherwise Liz’s life seems pretty good.

When the new reverend (Guy Pearce) climbs the pulpit in church, Liz freezes. She immediately knows she and her family are in danger.

In four chapters we see not only how the reverend tries to take everything Liz loves away from her, but also how her life has unfolded in the past.
