The Nest

Parents-to-be Kurt and Martha just want the best for their baby. They’re not afraid of hard work – the latest buggy doesn’t come cheap. But when Kurt’s boss offers him a chance to make some easy money with a mysterious side job, his rashness catches up with him.

“Yet the smallest of touches reach the heart. The baby is never seen; he is just a presence suggested by the cup of his mother’s hands, the careful way she folds a plaid rug around an empty space. As if to say: love is not something you find; you create it.”
– The Observer

★★★★ “Tender, ominous and powerfully watchable”
– The Sunday Times
