Family man and lawyer Christoper Cleek (Sean Bridgers) must do what he can to protect his family when he comes into contact with a feral woman (Pollyana McIntosh) living in the woods near his isolated country home. Through a series of harrowing encounters Cleek and his family quickly discover there is more to this woman than anyone would suspect and that sometimes the devil wears a handsome face.

"Director Lucky McKee, who also co-authored the novel on which the movie is based, told Speakeasy that “The Woman” has been compared to “My Fair Lady,” the classic musical, and “Nell,” the movie starring Jodie Foster. But, McKee says the movie is 'really inspired by films like Hitchcock’s ‘Shadow of a Doubt.'"
"'It’s really easy to give that badge to something that talks about misogyny,' McIntosh said. 'But just because something is discussed in a film and shown for what it is doesn’t mean the filmmaker is misogynistic.'"
