Eva’s life is running smoothly: she has a beautiful family, a successful business, and soon the house of her dreams. When her mother unexpectedly dies, Eva’s life unravels secrets and lies. The fear of losing her mind, just like her father who has been living in a mental facility for many years, becomes more and more threatening. Determined to find out the truth, Eva starts a poignant search for pieces of her past. This tense journey back raises questions about parental boundaries, the risks and dangers of childhood as well its joys, and what it means to be loved and to be understood.
