Besotted couple Billy and Rachel have a rat problem. But lurking below the floorboards of their first home together is a much darker, deep-rooted horror the couple must confront – no matter how damaging or deadly.

VERMIN is an unsettling, unrelenting and heart-breaking dark comedy that peels back the layers of unchecked grief.
