Against the backdrop of insufferable domestic ennui, the soft-spoken former saleswoman and newlywed housewife, Hunter, is struggling to stretch the bars of her gilded cage, a lavish and immaculate modernist villa in New York, even though she seems to have it all.
But, more and more, as sad Hunter tries, unsuccessfully, to meet her controlling family’s expectations, compliance turns into submission, obedience transforms into obsession, and pica, a compulsive eating disorder, starts to take over. Now, swallowing non-nutritive objects and engaging in increasingly impossible tasks becomes Hunter’s dangerous newfound addiction, and there’s no telling how far she’ll go to maintain a false and fleeting sense of power. Who can save Hunter from herself?
