Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
This is an overly long, socio-psychological drama about the emotional turmoil of 15-year-old foster-child Sussie (Anna Linden) and the difficulties experienced in her foster family. After Sussie arrives in her new home, her own inadequacies are mirrored in the family. The mother wants to win Sussie's affection, the father wants perhaps a little more than her affection, and the son is out-and-out infatuated with her. Given this environment, and her own instability, Sussie either is literally slashing out at people and things, or at herself. With little visible redemption in sight (though not ultimately discarded either), this is not a movie for the casual filmgoer.
