Set in the Irish Midlands in 1862, the story follows a devoutly religious young girl who stops eating but remains miraculously alive and well.

English nurse Lib Wright (Florence Pugh) is brought to a tiny village to observe, but not to administer to 11-year old Anna O'Donnell (Kíla Lord Cassidy), who claims not to have eaten for four months. A committee is set up to prove or disprove the claim and establish whether or not it is a religious miracle. Along with nurse Wright, they also hire a nun, so the two woman can alternate in eight-hour shifts. They are forbidden from conferring with each other and after 14 days, they are to present separate testimonies of what they have witnessed.

When Lib becomes concerned by what is happening, she can no longer keep a silent watch and tries to intervene.

Based on the book by Emma Donoghue.
