Alice Lowe, co-writer and co-star of Ben Wheatley's 2012 road trip Sightseers, makes an auspicious directorial debut with this dark and twisted comedy thriller about a murder mother-to-be, who runs amok in the benign surroundings of suburban Cardiff. Ruth (Lowe) is with child, a daughter who speaks to her from the womb and compels her to carry out dastardly deeds for reasons that are initially unclear. A local midwife (Jo Hartley) attempts to soothe Ruth's fears but the voice in her belly is too loud to ignore and the pregnant single mother targets the deeply unpleasant owner of a pet store (Dan Renton Skinner) and a sleazy pub DJ (Tom Davis) for her first kills. The thorny question of morality results in arguments between Ruth and her unborn child as the truth about the mother's past comes into focus.
