Revenge is the main code deployed in this horror film, which delves into the personal secrets of individuals smothered by the enormous roots of collective history. Along the way, just the right touch of tragedy and terror come alive. A nun from a hospice ward is assigned to take care of a terminally ill patient and recalls a terrible memory that involves him. The film raises moral and religious questions that revolve around the changes in the agents of vengeance and forgiveness triggered by reversals in power relationships. The occasional sense of humor inserted throughout the film by utilizing editing tricks is impeccable, and the quality of the production design and editing rhythm are likewise exceptional.
