At a remote lake house in the Adirondack Mountains, a couple entertains an out-of-town guest looking for inspiration in her filmmaking. The group quickly falls into a calculated game of desire, manipulation, and jealousy, unaware of how dangerously intertwined their lives will soon become. After this somewhat conventional setup, BLACK BEAR fractures into a serpentine narrative anchored by a knockout turn from Aubrey Plaza in one of her most mature performances to date.
