Juan Antonio Bayona, 2007

Cast: Belén Rueda, Fernando Cayo and Roger Príncep

Many years ago, Laura left the orphanage where she had spent her childhood. Now, thirty years later, she returns with her husband Carlos and her young son Simon, with a dream of restoring and reopening the long-abandoned orphanage as a home for disabled children. But the mysterious surroundings awaken Simon’s imagination and the boy starts to spin a web of fantastic tales and not-so innocent games...

As events take a sinister turn, Laura slowly becomes convinced that something long-hidden and terrible is lurking in the old house, something waiting to emerge and inflict appalling damage on her family.
