Katrin Ottarsdóttir, Faeroe Islands, 2014

71 min.FeatureDrama

A psychologial drama about an 11-year-old girl caught between her mother's dark, depressive mind and her father's wellmeaning passiveness. At a first glance it seems like an ordinary, happy family - mum and dad and their 11-year-old daughter living in a beautiful house in beautiful surroundings in a village in the Faroe Islands - but soon we realize that something dark and sinister lies lurking behind the facade waiting to explode.
