Filmmaker Guy Maddin's intriguing homage to silent films centers on a man (Erik Steffen Maahs) who returns to his childhood home on an abandoned island and uncovers the shocking truth about his mysterious parents. Exploring the orphanage his parents ran when he was a child, Guy unearths a world of disturbing science experiments and diabolical schemes. Narrated by Isabella Rossellini, this unique film recalls some of cinema's earliest works.
