One night, a beleaguered wife murders her alcoholic and abusive husband. She tells her three children, who he has beaten regularly, “You are free,” and turns herself in to the police. The children are haunted by their traumatic past and each follows divergent paths in life. Fifteen years later, their mother returns. Burdened by inner conflict and confusion, the family struggles to revive their ties to each other as the town turns against the retiring murderess. A powerful examination of the strength of family bonds, inescapable destiny, and the ultimate form of love and sacrifice. The latest masterpiece from the director of The Blood of Wolves and Birds without Names.
