The streamer released the trailer for the upcoming drama on Tuesday, in which the actress plays an English nurse, Lib Wright, sent out to conduct a 15-day examination in the Irish Midlands.

A small devout community claims a young girl, Anna O’Donnell (Kíla Lord Cassidy), has not eaten for four months by surviving on “manna from heaven.” Faith and science collide as Wright contends with the girl’s deteriorating health in the face of the community’s strict devotion.

“I’m here to find out the truth,” Pugh declares in the teaser.
