This carefully constructed film depicts three generations of a family, all in denial about events in which they were undeniably implicated. Their journeys towards confrontation with the truth and with their own motives reveal the humanity behind seemingly inhuman actions.
Sandra struggles to piece together and defend what happened three years earlier, when her 15-year-old son snatched a toddler from the park and held him captive for five days in his grandfather's house. She has agreed to do this on camera - filmed, as we later discover, by the young man in question. But her son will use their shared ordeal to extract another story from his mother, one that goes a long way towards explaining what he did.
