Filmmaker Olivier Masset-Depasse’s 1960s-set movie revolves around the lives of two close female friends who live in the same Brussels neighbourhood with their families. Their husbands and their children have also become good friends - but when a sudden tragedy impacts greatly on both families, their relationships and friendships are tested to the absolute limit. There are echoes of Mad Men to this stylish period thriller which maintains its poker face throughout. 

With the support of the Embassy of Belgium in Ireland.

A Hitchcockian thriller with fantastic production design and a killer twist.
