We made this film with the purpose of highlighting what the reality of domestic violence is really like – evoking emotions ranging from heartbreak to rage to complete and utter terror. The film can be described as a rollercoaster, an exemplification of volatility, the kind of volatility that is far too often hidden behind the scenes of seemingly happy relationships.
Simon is an eight-year-old boy who seems to have everything from life. He’s a handsome child, he’s rich yet unhappy. He senses that there’s something wrong with his life and this leads him to wander off thanks to his fervid imagination. His greatest wish is to leave the materialistic world behind since he isn’t fond of it. That’s why the only present he wants for Christmas is for Santa Claus to take him away to live in his fairyland toy factory. At the same time, a secret that his family has been keeping for a long time suddenly comes to the surface and it is feared that the worst might happen soon. The expectation for the stroke of midnight on the night before Christmas is transformed into reality for everyone on the eve of something truly different. Something terrible that might happen.
