Following the death of her father, a woman returns to her home village for the first time in fifteen years to claim the tenancy to the family farm she believes is rightfully hers.
After the formal fascination of The Arbor, and the low-key naturalism of The Selfish Giant, British filmmaker Clio Barnard changes direction again with this, her third feature. A superior psychological drama led by an excellent Ruth Wilson, Dark River is a compelling study in vengeance and trauma.
