The movie revolves around a young man named Finn (Max Schimmelpfennig), who saw his sister, Anna, getting killed when he was really young. However, it was not a natural death and something diabolical and paranormal was behind him and his sister.

Since then, his life hasn’t been the same and he still thinks about that fateful day in order to remind himself that he needs to find out what happened with her. The paranormal being is still out there and haunting him. His parents and younger sister don’t believe him and feels he is a freak. He is taking medications to control these hallucinations, but Finn believes that whatever he is seeing is absolutely real.

‘The Privilege’ Ending Explained: Did Finn get himself trap in a cult?

The medication Finn has been taking was an experiment to get him right. However, he knew that whatever was happening around him was due to that evil being. One day, while taking the medication he notices something floating inside the capsule. He cuts the capsule and takes that thing to his biology teacher. She tells him that this plant is really ancient and grew only on corpses.

She gives her a card of a specialist named Eliska Novak, who believes that the plant means something devilish is after them. He tells her that his sister is also feeling the same because she has been given the same kind of medicines as well. She says that they need to take the demon out of her by performing an exorcism. Finn freaks out and says he doesn’t want to do that.

After thinking for a while and seeing his grandfather getting operated on successfully, he calls Eliska and her son again for the exorcism. As soon as he reaches home, he sees her crush Samira at the house. A few moments later, his best friend Lena (Lea Van Ecken) also crashes in as Eliska and her son arrive for the demon-hunting. They call out the demon and for the first couple of tries, nothing happens. But the third time, they pick something up and feel that it is here. Meanwhile, the fourth, the demon arrives and Finn tells everyone to not look at him.

However, the demons burns the equipment that Eliska brought and at that time, Finn’s parents also come back home. Everyone leaves and Finn also tells Samira that he is coming with her. Finn’s dad tries stopping him, but he leaves.

While sleeping at a warehouse, Samira feels Finn is holding her hand. Shockingly, Finn comes from the toilet and asks if she woke her up. Samira says if he’s here then who’s holding her hand. It was the devil. Samira, Finn, and Lena freak out. Next day at the university, Finn sees Leander in a bad shape and asks if he needs to call someone. He doesn’t respond.

A few moments later, we find Leander on the university’s roof asking everyone to take it out from him. No one understands what he’s saying, he takes a knife and put it in his mouth, but he is unable to take it out. He jumps off the roof. Finn and Samira go to hospital with him while Lena takes the box of medicines that fell out of Leander’s pockets. Lena sees this and finds out that the medicine’s name ‘Trychozepam’. The company that’s making the medicine is Trondthal and the CEO of the company is Finn’s dad.

Lena visits its headquarters and sees the department where they are doing the trials. She sees dead bodies and a plant is growing out of their mouths. Lena leaves while Finn gets to know that he was adopted and not just him, but Leander was adopted as well.

Leander’s dad comes to him and tells that his family had a bond with the entity. The medicines they are making will change the world. A few moments later, Finn and Samira are captured at Finn’s house. Finn is being taken for an experiment and he is shocked to see that his entire family is involved, even his younger sister Sophie.

They perform the procedure on him and as he was being transitioned into the evil being, Lena enters and saves him. Samira, Lena, and Finn escape but the entity follows them. The entity enters the car and Samira is unable to control the car. They get into an accident, but luckily, they survive.

The movie ends with Samira, Lena, and Finn walking down the road to leave the town, but it turns out that the devil has entered Samira’s body and no one knows about it.
The ending makes us believe that ‘The Privilege’ will return for another movie and we feel that the movie deserves another edition.
