You Won’t Be Alone is about Maria (Anamaria Marinca), a 200-year-old witch, who abducts a young girl to raise as her own. But after transforming 16-year-old Nevena (Sara Klimoska) into one of her own kind, Maria quickly loses interest in her protégée. Abandoned in the woods, Nevena accidentally kills a peasant woman (Noomi Rapace) and assumes her shape. Enraptured by the wonders and hardships of life, Nevena continues to kill and inhabit both female and male villagers as she learns to treasure the range of human experience. But when Maria suddenly reappears, Nevena is forced to make a heartbreaking decision.
Written and directed by Goran Stolevski, the movie stars Noomi Rapace (Lamb) Alice Englert (Top Of The Lake), Anamaria Marinca (Invasion), Félix Maritaud (BPM), Sara Klimoska (Willow), Carloto Cotta (Tabu), and Arta Dobroshi (Lorna’s Silence).
You Won’t Be Alone will be available on digital platforms to rent and own in the UK from 20 October. Watch more trailers at the SciFiNow YouTube channel.
