Two daughters are locked up by their unemployed father and blind mother. When their neighbours call social services to report the children’s imprisonment, an investigation ensues; rumours fly and the girls’ plight is reported by the local press. The neighbourhood is caught up in a fury of controversy as the sisters are placed on a bittersweet path to joining the wider world. As explained by the director, this film combines documentary and fictional techniques in its story- telling. Most of the film’s protagonists are based on the actors themselves.
