Family reunions around Christmas often hold great potential for huge drama: when Matt goes on a surprise visit to his brother, he makes a distant, and aggressive impression. Why this is the case Matt finds out when his brother leads him to a door with multiple locks in the cellar. Behind it, the battered brother is convinced, the devil in the flesh is locked up. Based on this premise Josh Lobo develops an atmospheric, increasingly claustrophobic and gloomy chamber play, in which suppressed traumas begin to bubble to the surface, all while the devil ominously whispers and rages behind that cellar door. The perfect ingredients for nightmares.
