The plot of this movie revolves around a man who goes to his father’s birthday party and reveals in front of family and peers that his father had sexually abused of him and his late twin sister, who killed herself after his father started to assault her again. Almost everyone in the film pretends he is lying. It is a powerful commentary on gaslighting and keeping up appearances. There are also some scenes of general domestic violence (one of the brothers screams at his wife and has sex with her after the heated arguments, and hits his lover, leaving her unconscious).
