VIOLATION

STORY

With her marriage gone to the dogs, Miriam tries to find peace in her hometown, seeking the comfort of her sister. However, when she finds out about a devastating betrayal, she has no choice but to retaliate. She takes extreme action, leading her to a complete physical and emotional collapse. This revenge film provides an unsettling portrayal of a sexual trauma from the standpoint of an already mentally distressed female victim, translating it into an atmospheric story boasting an undeniable storytelling excellence, etheric landscape closeups, and cast chemistry, at the same time shocking the audiences with (even) explicit scenes. The film had its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.
