When Mrs. Haverhill calls for that Roth tackle her wayward and troubled great-niece Maya as a brand new apprentice, chaos enters his spartan existence, unlocking darkish secrets and techniques from a buried violent previous that threaten all of them.
Like all of his work, The Grasp Gardener is predicated on an unique screenplay by Schrader.
