“It’s important to get along, everyone’s so closed off today, so frightened of everything, but it’s important to be able to see others simply as human beings and not as threats”
When new neighbours move in across the hall, Greta’s partner is instantly suspicious of them? Can she help him overcome his paranoia or our his fears more justified than they initially seem?
The Neighbours is an unsettling domestic drama exploring our anxieties about newcomers in a Europe struggling to cope with the migrant crisis.
