It’s a wicked thing this world.
In 19th-century Macedonia, Maria (Anamaria Marinca), a 200-year-old witch, 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 in You Won’t Be Alone, a hauntingly humanistic, poetically supernatural story steeped in Macedonian folklore.
From visionary director Goran Stolevski and starring Noomi Rapace.
