RUSSIA , Lithuania , Ireland , France | 95 minutes | 2018

As he does in his first two features – the searing Corrections Class (2013) and the intriguing Zoology (2016) – young Russian indie helmer Ivan I. Tverdovsky pits an outsider against the system. This time it’s Denis, a teen with a rare congenital immunity to pain… which his mother and her gang of apparatchiks are only too eager to exploit. A dark tale with thriller overtones that’s a scathing indictment of toxic parenting and selfish greed. CANADIAN PREMIERE
