Psychological drama in which a successful woman after her mother’s death finds out her own life is based on lies and secrets. She delves into the past to cope with old traumas.
Eva has everything: a family, a successful company and the home of her dreams. But when her mother suddenly passes away, she discovers her life consists of lies and secrets. She becomes anxious and starts losing her grip on reality. When she decides to visit her father who has been in a mental home for over thirty years, this is the beginning of a disconcerting voyage of discovery to the past. With this psychological drama, Antoinette Beumer adapted her own, eponymous bestseller from 2018.
