    • Synopsis
    • Alzbeta (23) is desperate to find a man and create a new home in Ireland. Her family home in Slovakia is being torn down to make way for a motorway. Her older sister, Tina (27) — engaged to an Irishman, Steve (30) — wants to help her out, feeling she owes this to Alzbeta.
      She categorically refuses Tina’s help. It appears that Alzbeta is jealous of her better life and her engagement to Steve. From the beginning, there is a sense something dark and unsaid exists between the two sisters, something that creates great tension and prevents them from getting closer. From their perspective, men are the only things that offer happiness and a good life. The only possibility for the sisters to get out of this spiral is to face their common past, an incident about which no one has spoken since it happened.
