The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Over the Christmas holidays, the siblings Mia and Aidan are meant to spend two days alone with their father’s new fiancé, Grace, in a remote vacation home. They approach one another haltingly—but then shocking things suddenly occur and a change comes over Grace. Another densely atmospheric, complex genre piece by Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala. “The kind of horror film that rattles you on an almost subconscious level” (Brian Tallerico).
