Storyline

The lawyer, Iris Boelens, begins having problems with her mild-autistic son Aaron. As her son gets suspended for a week, Iris asks her mom Ageeth permission to spend that time in her house. A fish tank specialist, who drops by to take care of the aquarium, casually says that Aaron reminds him of her brother Ray. Iris is unique child, therefore the reluctance of her mother to talk about this fact unchains a set of contradictory events in the otherwise stressed lawyer. Iris has been hired by the rich lady owner of Benschop enterprises to investigate the accusations of child pornography filmmaker made against her dissolute son. Iris discovers in the office of her mother the real existence of her brother Ray. Through the Internet she came upon the fact that he was declared guilty of killing his companion Rosita and her baby Anna. Ray is an autistic man, who after a deficient official investigation and the bungled decision of a judge was condemned to 20 years in correctional mental health ... Written by Bob Buckingham

Was About to Watch This When...
13 December 2019 | by true_axisSee all my reviews

...I realized how many shill reviews it had. This many shill reviews means, at best, this movie is mediocre and at worst (most likely), it was a serious dog (I don't mean to insult dogs). My time is limited and a film must be good for me to put up with subtitles (for those that don't know, subtitles cause you to miss a fair amount of movie detail...even if you read very fast as I do). I decided to "pass" on it.

As old as this thing is and if it was worth a damn, it is highly probable that there would be more reviews. The lack of them is a bad sign, especially when there are way more shill reviews than legit ones! So, I'm willing to live with all of the not "helpful" ticks I'll get from the dishonest reviewers in order to help other folks avoid films with shilled reviews.

How do fake reviews make you feel about a movie?
