Everything seems normal in the small town of Taylorsville, SC, but behind one family's door life is a living hell.

Maggie Stoddard (Leslie Easterbrook) is married to Hank (Kane Hodder), who runs a small contracting business. Happily married with three daughters and son and life steadily changes, as Maggie is increasingly influenced by a TV evangelist and his God fearing ways.

With their marriage falling apart, Hank decides to leave quietly one night but is confronted by Maggie, who murders him in cold blood. Soon after what’s left of her family sees a terrifying side of Mom that they had never seen before.

Turning violent, Maggie tortures her two oldest daughters with beatings, prostitution, and force feeding, while leaving the youngest child to witness and help with her crimes. The family endures horrifying scare tactics all in the name of God. Too scared to run, who will be left to tell the story?

THE AFFLICTED is inspired by true events.
