‘Matriarch is the story of high-powered ad exec Laura (Jemima Rooper), who’s coping with career pressure and past psychological trauma with cocaine, alcohol, and an eating disorder. One night after an especially excessive alcohol and cocaine spree Laura collapses and dies. A mysterious, supernatural force enters her body and revives her. Not sure of what’s happening to her, Laura decides to return to her childhood home and try to work things out with Celia (Kate Dickie), the mother she hasn’t seen in 20 years. There’s something very strange about her mother, and about the whole village, too. So when it starts to look like the strangeness may be related to what’s happening to her, Laura determines to find the truth.’
