The Home is an exploration of the idea that we create our own monsters. The story examines our own humanity; specifically, how our lack of humanity and compassion brings out the monstrous in us. What’s truly evil, what’s truly monstrous comes from within, not from some external boogeyman or the devil.

Synopsis

The Home is a gothic folktale, elevated and character driven. The film mixes old world superstitions with the frenetic energy of a monster chase — Devil’s Backbone meets Aliens. Set in the Spanish Pyrenees in 1910, our story follows Isabel, a well-to-do young woman in her twenties recovering from a C-section and subsequent death of her child, and her unlikely friendship with Ana, a fifteen-year-old lower class prostitute. These two young women from opposite walks of life form a bond while living under the harsh conditions of a Catholic women’s home. Matters are further complicated after a pair of grisly deaths suggest that The Home might not be as isolated as they thought.
