BENDER unveils the bizarrely true story of America’s first serial killing family. The year is 1873, and travelers are mysteriously vanishing on the Kansas frontier. The troubled Doctor York goes searching for answers and stumbles upon the Benders, a homesteading family with an unnatural way of living off the land. As the elders of the family vie for dominance, their daughter Kate draws upon her supposed supernatural powers to will a better future, and a peculiar young boy is reared in the family trade – but unexpected visitors could threaten their seemingly quiet homestead. In this boldly restrained thriller, human hunger can be the most dangerous of traps.
