A woman drunkenly wrecks her big family house. The atmosphere is eerie: something is not quite right. Soon it turns out that her past haunts her, throwing her into a whirlwind of emotions and projections as she tries to piece together what happened to her; the psyche of a woman pushed beyond the limits of sanity is explored…
Claustrophobic, haunting and surreal, Keep Mum is a psychological thriller/horror that packs a feminist punch. The independent short film explores the psychological and emotional traumas of the cycle of domestic abuse, paying particular attention to the victims of this endemic phenomenon who are hidden from view: the children.
