Storyline

The lawyer, Iris Boelens, begins having problems with her mild-autistic son Aaron. As her son gets suspended for a week, Iris asks her mom Ageeth permission to spend that time in her house. A fish tank specialist, who drops by to take care of the aquarium, casually says that Aaron reminds him of her brother Ray. Iris is unique child, therefore the reluctance of her mother to talk about this fact unchains a set of contradictory events in the otherwise stressed lawyer. Iris has been hired by the rich lady owner of Benschop enterprises to investigate the accusations of child pornography filmmaker made against her dissolute son. Iris discovers in the office of her mother the real existence of her brother Ray. Through the Internet she came upon the fact that he was declared guilty of killing his companion Rosita and her baby Anna. Ray is an autistic man, who after a deficient official investigation and the bungled decision of a judge was condemned to 20 years in correctional mental health ... Written by Bob Buckingham

Excellent thriller and surprising plot twists
6 September 2013 | by Seemp deHondSee all my reviews

Funny how someone described it as a "TV like" movie (what ever that means). Many European, actually all non-American, films do not rely strongly on aimless action sequences and special effects and zoom in on the story. Therefore they keep a steady pace, convincing real life characters and the story is mainly told through image appose to spoon fed by dialogue. They're less "loud" This story is well thought through, original with twisting plots. Superb acting by the international known cast (yes people there was a time when Monique and Derek were killin' it out there) and throat grabbing drama and suspense. See it if you can.
