It's Angeliki's 11th birthday celebration, and a well-organised party is held in her honour. Everything is in order, and all the ingredients of a usual birthday party are there. A nice fest, a big cake, music, dance, a caring grandfather's embrace... a truly loving family environment. But is it real, or is this an elaborate facade? As we witness a devastating act of despair, we understand that something lies underneath. The story advances, and we slowly get lured into a web of hideous secrets, while gradually getting ourselves dragged into a downward spiral of lies and deceptive appearances. When we unwillingly unravel the mysteries kept behind closed doors, in reality, we plunge into the depths of the human soul and the unfathomable secrets within. Written by Nick Riganas

i am from Greece so i should say that this movie is a masterpiece and all that usual stuff almost everybody said about this movie..well i am from the few that didn't like it one bit..The actors played awful and fake..i mean what family acts this way??They all acted like they were hypnotized but in a bad bad way,i found the whole movie slow and boring and i don't recommend it to anyone..i wonder why they all say this is one of the best movies around..that is my honest opinion..There are tons of movies way better than this slow movie!Maybe Dog tooth was better but even that movie didn't said much to me and to a lot of people i know.I think that these kind of movies are not for all the people out there..anyway these kind of movies always go at the festivals and i am sure that i am not a fan of all these movies,again i speak for my self!
