Cri de Coeur


A vengeful father, a remorseful killer and a young woman who falls in love with the murderer of her sister; in this cocktail of revenge, lust and forgiveness, three protagonists seek a way to come to terms with a dramatic event that controls their life. Will history repeat itself or will reason eventually trump emotion?

TO THE BONE is a thrilling story of three people who need to come to terms with the murder of MIRA, a young woman who was killed by her lover in a fit of blind rage.

He starts a spiritual getaway where he helps other people to come to terms with their pasts. Manuel finally finds peace, until one day LOULOU, a young woman, visits the resort and for the first time in a very long time he falls head over heels in love. Not knowing that his new lover is the sister of Mira…
