A young man named Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) is preparing to meet his girlfriend Rose's (Allison Williams) parents for the first time. However, he is skeptical of the introduction because Rose, who's white, hasn't told her parents that he is black. While she sees no importance in the color of his skin, he knows it's going to be an issue.
As they make their way to Rose's family estate, he is immediately subjected to racial profiling by a cop; but he just chocks it up to typical white suburban behavior. When they arrive at the vast estate, Rose's parents (Catherine Keener and Bradley Whitford) do not hide their discomfort at their daughter's choice of suitor. And as the awkward visit drags on, Chris begins to notice that all the African Americans in the town are acting strangely — almost as if they're hypnotized — and soon uncovers a twisted plot that may leave him at the mercy of the townsfolk.

As three teenage girls are waiting in a car to be driven home the morning after a sleepover party, a strange man gets into the driver's seat. His name is Kevin (James McAvoy) — a seriously mentally ill man with 23 personalities. He kidnaps the girls and shuts them away in a locked bunker. They quickly learn he has more than one identity when he shows up dressed as a woman, telling them, "Don't worry. He knows what you're here for. He knows he's not allowed to touch you."
Another of his personalities, Hedwig, says he's nine years old. One of the girls, Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy), realizes the only way they can get out is to convince one of Kevin's alter egos to let them go. She thinks maybe Hedwig will help, but he tells them, "He's done awful things to people and he'll do awful things to you." Hedwig tells them that they're being prepared for "The Beast."
Meanwhile, Kevin's psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), who doesn't know what he's done, believes there is a submerged personality she hasn't yet met who will materialize and dominate all the others.
