“One of the years 10 best films.”  - The New York Times

While father performed mysterious experiments in the lighthouse basement, Gu and his sister lived upstairs within the family run orphanage under the all-seeing, protective gaze of mother. Years later, upon returning to his childhood home, Guy plunges into repressed memories of a bizarre series of events involving strange marks on the orphans' heads, and the brother and sister detective team sent to uncover the mystery. Narrated by Isabella Rossellini, this homage to silent cinema is a ninety-minute plunge into the vast cinematic fever dream of Winnipeg native Guy Maddin.
