An authoritarian and abusive father try to control every aspect of his children’s life. They are forbidden to see their sick mother, whom live confined in her room. The young daughter suffer the man’s abuses, but the eldest son start to rebel.


The domestic microcosm is the perfect structure to stage the contradictions of an abusive society that use the control of daily gestures to build and legitimaze itself, helped by a regime of lie and humiliation.
