The Daisy Chain

Synopsis: Martha, an emotionally fragile mother, who moves to a remote Irish village with her husband Tomas following the tragic death of their baby daughter. Whilst there, the couple decide to take in a disturbed and orphaned autistic girl called Daisy. Uncommunicative and greatly scarred by the violent death of her parents, Daisy gradually warms to her new surroundings. But, as a series of strange occurrences begin to be linked to the little girl, Martha and Tomas begin to hear rumors from the locals that Daisy might be something far more malevolent than she seems.

That's when

I came looking for you.

- Hello!

[baby crying]

- Jack, Jack.

No, don't be like that.

- Let's get you in.

- [whispering]

Daisy.

[sighs]

Move away.

- [giggling]

[melancholy piano music]

- Jack!

Jack!

Jack!

No!

Jack!

[wails]

No!

- Oh, God.

Oh.

- [screams]

No!

F*ck!

Jack!

[sobbing]

- Well, I think

we're done for now.

- Okay, thanks.

Hey, Sergeant Riley

says we can go.

- What was the baby called?

- Jack Gahan.

Come on.

- No, I just--

I just want to be by myself

for a minute.

[man speaking indistinctly

over radio]

- Come on, Jen.

- [sobs]

[sobbing]

My boy, Jack.

I'm so sorry I left you.

- Mummy, play with me.

Play with me.

- [sobbing]

Daisy, don't touch.

- Play with me.

- Don't.

[sobs]

- Daddy, play with me.

Please.

Jack's asleep.

He can't play with me.

No one

will play with me.

- [whispering]

Come here.

[cans clanking]

- Daisy?

Daisy?

You'd better

come down from there.

- [giggles]

- Poor old Mr. Cryan,

he won't like

you being up there, come on.

- Daisy!

Daisy, get down from there.

Daisy!

You're going to fall.

Daisy.

[yelling]

- What's happening?

- Yeah, she seems fine.

- You, are you okay?

- Martha, you okay?

- I'm--

I'm completely fine.

I just got a fright.

She just jumped.

- Away with you!

- [giggles]

- I told you.

She's crying for you.

Can't you hear it?

- Jenny,

don't listen to him.

- It's not too late.

It's not too late

to save her.

- Shut your face, old man,

or I'll shut it for you!

- Jimmy.

- Hey, come on.

Come on, leave it.

Go home.

- Come on, you.

[banging on door]

- Tomas!

Tomas!

[banging continues]

Tomas,

we need help!

Come on, Tomas!

- Water.

We need...

- Ah.

[flames crackling]

[people yelling]

- Ah, f*ck.

- Here, Martha.

- Need more water!
