A successful lawyer initiates a sexual affair with her teenage stepson in one of the year’s most controversial films. Audience Award, Sundance.

May el-Toukhy's precision-tooled melodrama stars Danish icon Trine Dyrholm (The Collective, SFF 2016; Nico 1988, SFF 2018) as Anne, a mother and lawyer specialising in child abuse cases who throws caution, ethics and everything else to the wind by seducing troubled stepson Gustav. Audience Award, Sundance World Cinema Dramatic competition.

Europe! Voices of Women director biography: May el-Toukhy graduated from the National Film School of Denmark in 2009, and her first feature film Long Story Short was a success with audiences and critics, winning her and cast members numerous awards.

This is Dyrholm's show and she gives it her all, emotionally and physically, delivering a full account of a woman who does whatever she wants because she believes she can get away with it.
Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter
One of the most complicated female villains of recent memory.
