Oscar winner Octavia Spencer again worked with Tate Taylor, with whom she previously starred in the glory of "The Servant". True, this time the heroine Spencer is by no means so benevolent. Sue Ann is a typical loner from a quiet town in Ohio. One day Maggie - a new girl in town - asks Sue Ann to buy a drink for her and her friends, and she takes this as a chance to make even much younger, but still friends. So that the children do not have to drive drunk, she offers the basement of her house for parties. But there are rules: one person must always remain sober, you must not use foul language, you must call Sue Ann only "Ma" and you must never go upstairs. In the best traditions of the genre, at some point, Ma's basement begins to transform from the best place in the city to the worst place on earth.
