In turn-of-the-century Japan, a young girl sacrifices her freedom in order to save her ailing father by becoming a factory worker.  Surrounded by fear and foes, she is soon entangled in an unexpected metamorphosis as she transforms into a silkworm. UNBOUND is based on the short story Reeling for the Empire from a New York Times Bestseller by Karen Russell. |  more info
