Eva puts her ambitions and career aside to give birth to Kevin. The relationship between mother and son is difficult from the very first years. When Kevin is 15, he does something irrational and unforgiveable in the eyes of the entire community. Eva grapples with her own feelings of grief and responsibility. Did she ever love her son? And how much of what Kevin did was her fault?

As screens go dark

Many cinemas around the world have had to close their doors during the global Covid-19 pandemic. Film festivals have been postponed and cancelled. We tip our hats to all those cinema managers and staff, and to all the festival teams playing their part in keeping audiences around the world safe and well. 

We’re here for cinemas as they reopen and for festivals as they reschedule. We want to help.
