How far would you go to keep your child safe?

Sylvie and her mother have run their family’s brothel business for years. They’re quite good at it, as proven through their many repeat customers and great online reviews. However, Sylvie’s daughter, Eline, has become increasingly interested in the place where Mommy works. And, for all her mother does to protect her (having her stay in the car, or with her uncle), Eline can’t help but be a curious six-year-old—wandering into the brothel one day. That’s when everything changes. Peter Monsaert (Offline, Cinequest 2013) directs this hauntingly beautiful drama that is at times intense and chilling, but which always preserves its message that family is of the utmost importance.
