21-year-old Mariana lives in a radical Christian community in Brazil, where she does her best to be a moral woman. At night, she and her friends express their religiosity in other ways: Masked, they hunt down and beat up less virtuous women. When Mariana herself is scarred in one of the assaults, she loses her job at the beauty clinic and finds work in a nursing home for coma patients. There she encounters more victims of her gang and her faith begins to waver. The stylish horror film MEDUSA is a convincing and gripping parable about religion, politics and violence in today's Brazil.
