Nothing can quite prepare for such an unorthodox film as Malady, a bold and dreamlike tale of unconventional romance, long-buried secrets, and the possessive intensity of familial bonds. To fulfill the last wish of her deceased mother, grieving Holly seeks out love and finds it in Matthew; their relationship swiftly becomes very close and all-encompassing. After receiving the news of Matthew's ailing mother, both arrive to provide care in her final days, only to be faced with a nightmarish reality spiraling out of control.
