Our Little Secret

Our Little Secret

World Premiere

Synopsis

Director

Everybody has a secret. Two young sisters abandoned by their mother. A strange woman sleeping on their couch. A sinister fugitive hiding in their barn. FBI agents snooping around. And the world seems to be coming to an end – with a bang, not a whimper.Yes, this is going to be the best birthday ever!

„Our Little Secret“ is a beautiful, haunting tale of love, loss, and the true meaning of family. Filled with magical realism, it follows in the footsteps of „Forbidden Games“ (1952, dir. René Clément), „Pan’s Labyrinth“ (2006, dir. Guillermo del Toro), „The Beasts of the Southern Wild“(2012, dir. Benh Zeitlin) and other classics that explore the mysteries of childhood and the pains of growing up.

By turn humorous and heartbreaking, it features unique characters (adult and children), majestic Southern California locations, and a story line that weaves between drama, comedy, suspense thriller, and fairy tale. So, will everyone live happily ever after? That’s our little secret.
