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

Lawyer finds out she has a brother behind bars and tries to free him. Some want to stop her at any cost.
4 September 2013 | by BoloxxxiSee all my reviews

This is a TV-level or TV-like "drama in family" movie about Iris Boelens, a young single mother and lawyer, contending with an autistic child and the discovery that she has a brother who is locked up for a double murder --and who has autism also. Not much action (violence) or action related suspense in this movie. It is mainly psychological drama and suspense (thriller, I guess) that originates from this lawyer's dogged search for the truth about her brother and family and the people who want to stop her when she decides to investigate his crime and get him new representation.

Whether or not you warm to this movie depends on whether or not you care about the central character in it and/or the subject matter. Therefore, whether or not you are sympathetic to Iris Boelens and the problems and mystery of her family. Iris is a busy woman, juggling a demanding job and problem child who has been suspended from school. Her mother has a cool, no-nonsense facade but one has a sense that deep down she perhaps cares. She is taciturn; doesn't want to give Iris any info about her newly discovered brother. This leaves Iris no choice but to turn to her trusty computer and perhaps the Dutch version of Google. The movie grows on you if you're patient and has an interesting ending that actually made me say "Sh!t, I didn't see that coming". Love, Boloxxxi.
