Britain, modern day. When twentysomething Claire’s mental and physical health worsen, she starts to see sinister visions in her house, overcoming disbelief her sister and flatmate Anna, calls on the local priest to counsel her.
But Claire’s parents, angered by Anna’s intervention insist Claire sees a psychiatrist instead. As the visions grow more terrifying the priest and the psychiatrist battle each other in an effort to gain control of Claire.
Her family are relieved when she’s finally sectioned and medicated. But whatever was haunting the sister’s house is very real indeed, and now has free reign; furthermore its target wasn’t Claire, it was Anna all along.
In The Heiress we’re introduced to the female entity Lillith, that has helped and hampered the family’s female line for 4 generations. Charting their story from the twenties to modern day, the women must finally realise they must break free from their supernatural patron and seize back their independence.
An intelligent supernatural horror focused on the centuries old conflict between religion and science.
