A supernatural thriller set in the Western frontier of the late 1800s. Lizzy, a settler, accompanies her husband Isaac in an effort to cultivate a desolate stretch of the American Western frontier. Living in an isolated house on the plains, her husband constantly away for work, and the growing demands of her domestic existence soon begin to take a toll on Lizzy who insists an evil presence is after her. When a couple of young newlyweds take up residence in a nearby cabin, Lizzy finds comfort in confiding her fears in the unhappily married Emma. But the couple’s own strange experiences only make her paranoia grow stronger. THE WIND stars Caitlin Gerard (INSIDIOUS: THE LAST KEY) as a plains-woman driven mad by the harshness and isolation of the untamed land.
