For years now, Jo (Josephine Decker) has been plagued by dreams about
her mother who has died when she was 7 years old, but now that things have
gone more to the nightmare side of things, she has decided to try and find
out what they might mean. To this end she has taken in her estranged
father (Thomas Francis Murphy), who's a hopeless alcoholic though who
needs care and medication and who refuses to talk about her mum. The only
thing his stay does though it to alienate her girlfriend Kate (Isolde
Chae-Lawrence), who soon feels she's in it over her head.
for answers, Jo turns to a medium (Suki Diviine), who senses something
sinister and suggests a cleansing ritual - only the ritual doesn't go
quite as planned ...

the Plague is anything but your usual horror movie: It takes its time
to tell its story, leaves story elements open to interpretation, doesn't
rely at all on spectacle or sudden shocks, and for the most part it

well-improvised dialogue, long and artful takes, and plenty of symbolism -
but all of this, in connection with the horror context, really drags one
