Storyline

Marie is an overprotective mother of Sara since she was born. When Sara is a little girl, Marie loses her in a playground and decides to experiment a new technology to control what Sara can see or not and track her, implanting a chip in her. When Sara is a teenager, Marie promises to remove the parental controls from the device and put it aside. One night, Sara stays until late hours making love with her boyfriend Trick in his van by the lake and Marie restarts the device, seeing what her daughter is doing. What will Sara do when she discovers what her mother did? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Parental guidance gone mad.
2 January 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I'll admit to being initially underwhelmed by this one, but as it went on it got better and better, with the story becoming more and more compelling and the agenda of Sara's overbearing mum Maria becoming more controlling. With all the enhancements in technology and society's craving for more and more technical integration the real scare here is this felt like something that could perhaps be a reality one day. The arguments for and against the implant device are well balanced, you see things from viewpoints of Sara and Maria. Superb performances from Rosemarie DeWitt and Brenna Harding, and wonderfully directed, bravo Jodie Foster. Another sizzling episode. 9/10
