Storyline

A woman is tortured by the sudden disappearance of her only child years before. Obsessed with having another baby, she is devastated and driven to emotional crisis when discovering her new husband is infertile. Gripped by despair, the woman begins to resign herself to the bitter likelihood of never having another child. Striking up a friendship with two discarded young laborers hired to re-paint her son's now silent room, the three lost souls form a disturbing bond as the boys are led deeper into the woman's tormented world. Her family's suspicions of this unsettling new friendship sets off an irreversible series of events, leading to madness and murder as the horrors of the past collide with the sins of the present, ending in tragedy and terror.

This is a really weird thriller with plot twists galore and an ending not expected.
1 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What I loved most about this film was the weird voyeuristic quality that you feel watching the fabric of her life unravel and flipping your empathy and sympathies from one character to another. The female lead, played by Sammi Davis is riveting as she recklessly leads you into her loneliness, loss, sadness and desires. Davis's performance is one of the strongest female performances I have seen and her dive into the darkness of her own will and desire is frightening and mesmerizing in the same moment. The film's production design moves from always being just a shade darker or a shade off of what you might be expecting in its use of muted but rich colors to stark barren rooms and landscapes. All of this adds to the tension of the film's plot and is reinforced by an equally riveting and sometimes stark John Cage-like musical score. All the performances in the film are balanced and strong and all the male leads are powerful and diametrically different from one another adding to the dimensionality of the plot. But all in all, it is Sammi Davis who is astounding and makes this film come alive in its ultimate madness. But then, who would expect less from Director, Tony Randel who covers every frame with his special touches and takes us flawlessly through days of crazy madness. Loved it.
