At the age of 13, 'Una' was the target of sexual abuse by Ray, an older man and former neighbour. Fifteen years later she discovers Ray is working at a large organisation under an assumed name. Una confronts Ray at his workplace. Is Una seeking revenge for her abuse as a child? Does she have other motivations? Does Ray feel guilt for his actions or is he unrepentant?
Don't expect answers. Everything about the issues canvassed in the film remains inconclusive.
Ruby Stokes and Rooney Mara as Una and Ben Mendelsohn as Ray give strong performances in this dark film which never quite escapes it's theatrical origins.
