An ideal life under her full control: a loving family with her doctor-husband and twin daughters and a successful legal career specialized in juvenile sexual assault cases. The perfect picture is blemished when her estranged teenage stepson unexpectedly moves in, unleashing hidden desire that drives her towards a critical choice with fatal consequences. Berlinale Best Actress Trine Dyrholm anchors this psychological drama with a nuanced yet powerful performance after The Commune (SummerIFF 2016) and You Disappear (42nd).
