Anjie Comer is a social worker who encounters a bizarre case of child abuse in this psychological thriller. Arriving at the house of her new client she finds ‘Mama’ tending to a full-grown man dressed as a baby, living in a cradle–obviously something is a little weird here. They call him ‘Baby’. Mama is one scary parent, all knotted-up in a confused love-hate obsession with Baby that has it’s roots in some distant bad experience. Baby’s twisted sisters round out this trio of demented day-care ditherers. ‘This is no place for Baby’, thinks Anjie, and eventually runs away with her man-child to save him. Pursued by the savage trio, Baby and Anjie have a hair-raising run to freedom that ends in a shocking denouement – and reveals the riddle of Baby’s destiny.
