While on a beach vacation alone, Leda (Olivia Colman) is intrigued and fascinated by a young mother (Dakota Johnson) and her little daughter as she watches them on the beach.
Troubled by their irresistible relationship, (and their rowdy and threatening extended family), Leda is overwhelmed by her own personal memories of the feelings of terror, confusion and intensity experienced in the early stages of motherhood. An impulsive gesture upsets Leda and projects her into the strange and sinister world of her own mind, where she is forced to face the unconventional choices she made when she was a young mother and their consequences.
