This second feature, following debut film Kinetta in 2005, portrays a deranged, dysfunctional family cut off from the outside world. Living a recluse existence, the three children have no choice but to abide by the rules their father has imposed. The only person allowed to visit is Christina, an employee at the father’s business, to satisfy the sexual urges of the son…
