Boris Rodriguez, Canada, 2011

90 min.Feature

Lars Olaafsen, once a young celebrity in the art world is slipping away fast into the land of has-beens. Ronny, his long-time art dealer wants his meal ticket back but Lars refuses to paint. His creativity comes at too high a cost. His inspiration is carnage - blood, guts and limbs - and he's vowed to never go down that dark road again. An overly eager Ronny arranges a job for Lars teaching art in a small town. It's a "therapeutic measure" - a means to conquer his need to paint while in the "safety" of a country retreat. Despite the odd assortment of local eccentrics (and a couple of hostile teachers) things look promising overall for Lars at his new job. That is, until he meets 30-year-old Eddie, a brawny mute who attends the school and harbours a dark and sordid secret of his own.
