Once upon a time there was a little girl named Clara and her parents loved her very much. Her mother doted on her and her father treated her as his little princess, but things were not as they appeared. One fateful Christmas morning, Clara receives a pair of beautiful porcelain dolls, a soldier and ballerina. Clara slowly begins to lose control of herself, acting out in ways neither she nor her parents understand. Her parents frantic attempts to help only push Clara further into the dolls cold porcelain embrace. As Clara's world unravels she is left with one question, whether to fight her demons or dance with them. Finally, their world shatters forever. Written by Cat Watson (Director)

You can feel the pretentiousness from the director. Nothing new here and nothing that wasn't done infinitely better by better directors. Horror genre has a lot of fantastic directors you should check out. This ain't one of them.
