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.

A thriller that makes you think long after the film is over.
13 February 2010 | by kgjtbSee all my reviews

It's difficult for the viewer not to share empathy with Sophonisba (Sammi Davis), as she deals with the despair of a missing child. Her far-reaching and obsessive desire to have another child, by most desperate means, foreshadows a dubious outcome for sure- but don't try to predict the ending because there are several very interesting plot twists. The movie never drags, has a suspenseful and uncomfortable musical score which heightens the senses, and keeps you engaged as two dark worlds converge and hidden truths come to light. You may never reflect upon this film as "low-budget" due to the talented cast and artful writing and direction. One of the great independent films!
