After a bus accident in the middle of nowhere, Lupa decides to tag along with another passenger, Alban, who is determined to reach the nearest village on foot. Crossing through fields and rivers, they slowly go off-course in a strange forest.
LET THE BEAST RISE seems inspired by the literary trend of magic realism, and offers audiences the chance to experience the savageness of a young woman possessed by a strange force. A strange yet burning tale about freedom, discovery, and self-abandon, with wonderful performances by Pauline Lorillard and Louis Cristiani.
