Morgan (Anya Taylor-Joy) is not like any other girl. Created and raised in a laboratory environment by a group of scientists, she defies nature with her super-human qualities. Walking and talking within one month and self-sufficient after just six, her rapid progression is remarkable, exceeding the expectations of her creators. After Morgan has a “tantrum” in which she viciously attacks and injures one of the scientists (Jennifer Jason Leigh), corporate troubleshooter Lee Weathers (Kate Mara) is called in to determine whether or not to terminate Morgan before she can cause any more havoc or escape to the outside world.

A corporate risk-management consultant must decide whether or not to terminate an artificially created humanoid being.
