He’s a bit misfit, but with his encouragement, he’s starting to share. His story, which he tells from alarming details illustrations, not wordsâstar a lot like a familiar fairy tale … until it is quickly becomes dark and scary.
Obviously, Lucas’ story is a thinly veiled description of his own family life, something sympathetic Julia picks up immediately. What does not become clear until, presumably, a little later in the film is how truly monstrous some of the “bears” Lucas refers to are, as suggested. the official description of the film: “In a remote Oregon town, a middle school teacher (Keri Russell) and her sheriff brother (Jesse Plemons) fall out with her enigmatic student (Jeremy T. Thomas) whose dark secrets lead to terrifying encounters with an ancestral creature legendary that came before it. them.”
