The world we know has gone. The 'shred' came and took away our minds, and everything fell apart. But like an oasis set apart from the desolate, destroyed world, one family exists, out of sight. The daughters work the land, their mother rules with an iron hand.
One day the sisters are seduced by a Stranger who shatters their peace and stirs a past best left buried.
Glasshouse has a haunting score, beautiful photography and superbly detailed production design.This debut feature by Egan is one of the most tightly written and piercingly observed science fiction films we have seen for years.
