Do we ever really know what those around us are truly capable of enduring? A psychological thriller about the return of a previously abducted young woman and the torment she and her family suffer, TRUE NATURE is a shocking film shot in Dayton, Ohio that reels you in and leaves you feeling as on edge as its troubled characters. When Marianne shows up covered in mud on the doorstep of her parents' house after missing for nearly a year, her trauma appears so severe that at first she can't remember anything about her abduction. The only memories she does have of the horrific experience come to her in nightmares that ultimately begin haunting her every thought. The crazier Marianne seems to become, the more she begins to reveal the dark secrets of her family. Marianne's father Reg is a high-powered businessman who is secretly involved in seedy transactions that wind up getting him into serious trouble with the wrong kind of people. Becky, Marianne's mother, is a controlling, neurotic woman whose sole concern is dressing up and showing off her newly returned daughter. As Marianne's hallucinations worsen, she becomes obsessed with dirt, evoking memories about what may have happened to her. The closer she gets to the truth, the more eerie the story becomes, resulting in an unsettling twist you won't see coming. – M.M.
