“The House” tells the story of an imperfect man’s dream of a perfect family. Imrich builds a house for each of his daughters. In his own backyard. When his older daughter Jana became pregnant at the tender age of 18, Imrich threw her out, stopped building her house and focused all his energy on building a second house for the younger Eva. What was once a small girl’s innocent drawing of a dream has now become a nightmare for the teenage Eva. She is forced to work on the construction of her “gift”. Every day, every free minute. Eva dreams rebelliously of love and the world beyond the walls built by her father. Her scandalous affair with a married teacher begins a painful process of awakening for each member of this family that hasn’t been able to communicate for a long time.
