A terrific slow burn, Welsh-language folk horror, laced with twisted humour, brutal body horror and extreme gore.

In a modern, luxurious house situated in remote Welsh mountains, a wealthy family prepare for an extravagant dinner party. They are on a mission to impress their neighbour and broker a business deal to mine the surrounding countryside. Tensions are already running high when their hired help, Cadi, an eerily quiet and sickly looking waitress, arrives traipsing all kinds of dirt into their precious home. Lee Haven Jones’s disquieting and delicious debut feature delivers a masterclass in tension-building, while delightfully sinking its teeth into capitalism without restraint. A tasty treat for those with strong stomachs to consume!
