Overview

A woman wakes up in an unfamiliar and terrifying world in this grim horror tale inspired by a true story. After coming home from a date, forty-ish single mom Hope (Nadja Brand Mason) thanks the babysitter, looks in on her six-year-old daughter, and goes to bed. When she wakes up, Hope discovers she was abducted in the night and is trapped inside a coffin-like wooden box that's been buried beneath the ground. When she's dug up and released, Hope learns she's being held captive by a man with no name (Eric Colvin) living in the woods who then ties her to a tree and gives her a razor she can use to free herself -- though she won't be able to do so without severely scarring herself. After a failed break for freedom, Hope realizes her only chance for survival is to bend to the will of her captor, though her desire is largely fueled by a need to know what's become of her daughter. Two months later, Hope has learned more than she ever wanted to know about primitive life with her fearsome master when she's joined by a new victim, a frightened teenage girl (Abbey Stirling). Broken was the fourth feature from director Adam Mason and his first in collaboration with co-director Simon Boyes, who made his feature debut with this movie.
