Synopsis

In the 1980s, a teenage boy is killed in a farming accident, sending young Hera and her parents into a tail-spin of grief over the death of her heavy metal music-obsessed older brother. Now a decade later, Hera is transformed into a sexy, surly head-banger and DIY musician, dressed in black leather and a Slayer t-shirt, clutching her dead brother’s electric guitar as she howls anthems of rage to a barn full of cows. Seemingly trapped in a haunted landscape of slaughterhouses and barren winter fields, making all the wrong choices in her life – including coming on to the local priest and sleeping with her platonic best friend – Hera slowly, painfully comes to terms with her family’s loss and the sound of her own true voice.
