As Francis and Katrina come home after a well liquored party, they are mugged by a motorcyclist who steals the young woman’s handbag. Francis later finds the culprit and kills him,  while trying to solve the affair. A few days later, Katrina unsettles the family by announcing her unexpected pregnancy.

The return of Aik Karapetian, a latvian filmmaker of armenian descent, after the much noticed People Out There and The Man in the Orange Jacket. He also signs the script of this new electroshock halfway between Straw Dogs and Rosemary’s Baby, cleverly mixing thriller, drama and suspense and muddling our references.
