The Offering

« This tricky and clever narrative structure is brought to life by some nuanced performances from all involved. At the heart of The Offering is an unhealthy love triangle, one in which each point is equally fleshed out and given time to marinate in the mind of the viewer. »

Synopsis

Violeta, a psychiatrist, receives an unforeseen visit from a new patient. It’s Rita, the wife of Jan, an old teenage love of Violeta that marked her life after abandoning her automatically twenty years ago.
