Synopsis

A couple take over an abandoned orphanage, hoping to give the place a new lease of life. But there's something odd happening there - or rather something odd happened some time in the not so distant past - which affects their young son, before he vanishes into thin air. The mother resorts to ever more bizarre methods to get to the heart of the mystery, and the result is a very clever, very spooky mix of horror and melodrama.  If you enjoyed Pan's Labyrinth and The Others, then this truly disturbing Spanish film should be at the top of your wish list.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
