With Mia Goth portraying both roles of Maxine and Pearl, it proved a clear connection between the 2. As Maxine is pursuing her dreams of making it in the Hollywood industry, Pearl is still vying for fame and sexual freedom.

Now in this prequel, we follow Pearl as a young woman as she lives with her German immigrant parents in a farmhouse in Texas. While her husband is off at war, she must take care of her paralyzed father and overbearing mother. Pearl dreams of a more glamorous life that fulfills all her ambitions and sexual desires. As her temptations and repressions come to a head, horrific chaos ensues.
