Storyline

Marie is an overprotective mother of Sara since she was born. When Sara is a little girl, Marie loses her in a playground and decides to experiment with a new technology to control what Sara can see or not and track her, implanting a chip in her. When Sara is a teenager, Marie promises to remove the parental controls from the device and put it aside. One night, Sara stays until late hours making love with her boyfriend Trick in his van by the lake and Marie restarts the device, seeing what her daughter is doing. What will Sara do when she discovers what her mother did? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A lesson to learn for the parents!
25 May 2018 | by cathylrSee all my reviews

Without giving spoilers, the story in itself is rather simple: it is about a mother worried about how she will manage her daughter´s education all by herself. She therefore becomes overprotective and resorts to technology to follow her everyday activity. The acting is good, the direction is excellent as it really leaves the suspense of knowing whether the daughter actually needs to be kept under protection. The end is a very good lesson to learn for any parent who would want to know a bit too much about their children.
