    At a wedding, Octavian, the bride’s uncle, sexually assaults one of his nephews. 6 years later the couple divorce, but Octavian, godfather to their twins, is still there with his secrets and the evil he does.
    Through her personal story, Thea Rozjman talks about the scourge of pedophilia and sexual and domestic violence with great sensitivity. These extremely difficult subjects are wonderfully mitigated by the graphic choices Sandrine Revel made to represent abuse using silences and ellipses that bring even more force to the subject.
