Dogtooth is a darkly humorous insight into a bonkers and surreal world of parental control gone mad. A mother and father so desperate to preserve their children's innocence create a self styled utopia within their secluded compound walls. Completely shut off from the outside world the now grown up children have their own vocabulary and believe cats to be man eating predators. When their father decides to invite a woman in to service his son's sexual urges the domestic balance is irrevocably disturbed. It is only a matter of time before the walls of their superficially constructed world of childhood innocence and fantasy come tumbling down.
