Kyle Gallner, Holland Roden
Emmett wants to quickly sell his recently deceased mother’s house, but lingering memories of childhood abuse soon emerge when he and his fiancee Anya stay the night. Anya wants to force Emmett to deal with his trauma and shape him into the partner she needs.
She convinces him to take mushrooms to get him to let go. But something strange happens while they’re tripping: she starts behaving like his mother. The next morning, he wakes up sober, but she still won’t drop the act… Anya loves playing games — is this her taking it too far? Or did his mother’s spirit somehow possess her?
With the most twisted depiction of a couple in crisis in which the power dynamics are ever-shifting, MOTHER, MAY I? is a psychological thriller about who we think we are and who we pretend to be.
