MissDirection Entertainment - Project Detail- Maternal Instincts

How far would you go for someone you love?

Religious, codependent mother Agatha Thatcher pushes the boundaries of her own morality when her sadistic teenage son Isaac begins to kill. Motivated by her love for him, Agatha helps Isaac kidnap a girl from his class. After her disappearance, Isaac’s teacher Ms. Jones suspects Isaac due to his history of disturbing comments. But because the girl was from a poor family with a history of alcoholism, the cops – one of whom is Ms. Jones’s brother – dismiss the disappearance as just another runaway case in their dying small town. But the guilt of killing haunts Agatha, and she has visions of the girl’s ghost – following Agatha everywhere she goes. A deeply religious woman, Agatha prays for forgiveness. But then Isaac strikes again – taking the daughter of the richest family in town, Natalie. In a society that values some children’s lives over others – this disappearance shakes the small community, leading to a massive search for Natalie that reveals the bodies of Isaac’s past victims. As the investigation heats up, Agatha faces a choice that challenges every maternal instinct she knows, and drives her to the edge of insanity…
