Greta – Frances (Chloë Grace Moretz) returns a lost bag to a stranger named Greta (Isabelle Huppert). Having recently lost her mother, Frances quickly grows closer to the widowed Greta. The two quickly become friends — but the older woman’s maternal charms begin to grow increasingly disturbing as Frances discovers that nothing in Greta’s life is what it seems.
A Vigilante – A once abused woman, Sadie (Olivia Wilde), devotes much of her time to keeping herself in fighting shape in order to help other victims of domestic violence. Still haunted by her own experiences of abuse at the hands of her husband (Morgan Spector), a man who believes violence and control are forms of love, she realizes she must hunt him down and kill him in order to truly be free.
