UK PREMIERE - The stunning feature directorial debut of visual artist Pascual Sisto, adapted by Oscar-winning writer Nicolás Giacobone (BIRDMAN) from his novel ‘The Well, is a sinister coming-of-age fable, a disturbing and harrowing deep dive into what make the bored pre-adolescent mind tick. In a chilling performance, Charlie Shotwell plays John who drugs his family and traps them in an unfinished concrete bunker in the forest. Why? Because he is trying to understand his own burgeoning pubescence and that heartfelt unsettling reality in what the director calls HOME ALONE as if directed by Michael Haneke. An intense and ravishing unique cinematic experience.
