Details

Sometimes you don’t even know what you’ve been craving until the real thing comes along.

A writer in a totalitarian state is interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a number of child-murderers that are happening in his town.

Martin McDonagh’s tale twists and turns with purpose; creating bridges over a deep pit of sympathy in this tragic vision of stunted lives.
