As the world watches on, a desperate couple (Armie Hammer, Call Me By Your Name and Nazanin Boniadi, "Homeland") is forced to make unthinkable sacrifices to protect their newborn child.Written by

I had high hopes before I started watching this movie, but after finishing this I felt it was just an average movie , with below average performances.

They could have showed more details about the whole incident.
