Ellie, a troubled pregnant woman, returns to her childhood home seeking solitude to work on a thesis only to discover that her estranged mother is waiting for her. This unexpected 'reunion' gradually turns dark as Ellie begins to lose her grip on reality. A psychological thriller that preys upon perception, Reunion sees veteran actress Julia Ormond deliver a tour-de-force performance of threateningly quiet intensity and features a twisty narrative that will burrow itself into the darkest corners of your mind.
