“I never had a chance. They’d made up their mind about me from the moment they opened that door and found me bawling on the step.”
A small town in Georgia: a nameless Orphan returns to the orphanage where he was raised hoping that he can cauterise the wound that has been festering in him since he was a child. His friend Patience is brought along, on the grounds that she might find some sense of closure. When they bump into their old Caretaker who has information about their dark past, Orphan’s true motives start to become clear and Patience begins to lose control. Are sins ever forgiven? Or do sins simply beget more sins?
Originally produced by Black Dog Productions in 2018 to huge audience and critical acclaim, Orphan will leave you questioning the true meaning of ‘family’.
