The only residents of young Nicholas' sea-side town are women and boys. When he sees a corpse in the ocean one day, he begins to question his existence and surroundings. Why must he, and all the other boys, be hospitalised?
It's a good film. A touching drama about a war torn family and people living in fear in a period of war. Good production value and good acting, too.
So, why the three stars? Because it claims to be a horror film.
The horror part of the film, which consists of standard jump scare mostly, comes after a very long while, few and far in between, and not scary at all. The potential is there, considering the culture (which is religion-heavy) behind the story, but it's not explored enough.
If you're looking for a horror film, and you're thinking, "Ooh, this must be unique because it's a foreign film," this is not the one.
