Krisha returns for Thanksgiving dinner after ten years away from her family, but past demons threaten to ruin the festivities.
Krisha, a pill-popping, booze-swilling hippie, has lived her life as the black sheep. After a decade of battling her inner demons, she returns home for Thanksgiving following years of estrangement. The mysterious arrival brings tension to an otherwise familiar holiday gathering that swells as each layer of the past is slowly unraveled. Soon, family secrets are unearthed, lies are revealed, and trust is broken. A character study of the most intense degree, Krisha is a dizzying, captivating portrait of addiction that challenges the boundaries of compassion.
