TV Beats Co-Financing Market
Newly parents Maria and Ott move to an idyllic neighbourhood to turn a new page. Maria’s debut film was a flop and she wants to focus on home life. But being a stay-at-home mom whose days center around playgrounds just frustrates her more. One day at the playground she notices a woman in a basement window and becomes convinced she is imprisoned. Her fervour quickly captivates a few other frustrated parents, and soon a posse of would-be detectives who prefer to solve the “case” rather than deal with their personal crises is formed. Only Ott is left out, forced to confront his past.
