SYNOPSIS

 
 

You never know what is hidden behind closed doors.
It could have been a story about a perfect family - a successful businessman, loving wife, and mother of two adorable children.
But real life is never easy and simple.
Hidden desires, contradictions, and the hurricane of true love. Everything has its price and the time has come to pay the bills.

THE FILM - PLOT

It could have been a story about a perfect family: a husband and wife with two wonderful children.
But real life is never so simple.
The fact is, we occupy the world, which forces us to face unexpected situations and actions to which we have to make tough, and frequently brutal decisions.
What are the alternatives? Do nothing, pretend you are blind to your surroundings, and attempt, often in vain to defend the seal on pandora's box?

To live a life like thousands of other families, to lie and succumb to others' lies?
What works for some, is the antithesis of true life for others, and here we meet the Cornfield family. A family unit where love forces heartbreaking actions.
 
Will our characters survive this game of destiny, where their future seems mapped out until a fork in the road is encountered?
Fate is playing its hand in our family’s lives, and everything could change with the turn of the next card.
Our story follows hidden desires, contradictions, and a whirlwind of true love.
With all these complications and vibrations from an ever-restless Pandora box, everything has a price and the time to settle the tab!
