Laura (Evan Rachel Wood) works as a cleaner in her father's firm and gets to know 16-year old Eva (Julia Sarah Stone) at work. The strong attraction between the two soon becomes an obsession. Each seeks their counterpart in the other: Laura's rebellious power and Eva's innocence seem to complement each other perfectly. When Eva is persuaded by Laura to move in with her, a dangerously intense relationship begins that can only escalate. A Worthy Companion is a brilliantly told psychodrama about power and manipulation with two superb protagonists.
