“A mean, menacing undercurrent slithers through Firstborn.  It’s not easily dismissed…a rather shattering drama, wrapped in the clothing of a very tense, slow-boiling thriller.” – Screen Anarchy

Synopsis:
An intense yet coolly observed psychological thriller from Latvian director Aik Karapetian (The Man in the Orange Jacket). Francis is a meek middle-aged architect trapped in an unhappy with his younger wife Katrina. After a party, the childless couple are robbed by a thuggish young motorcyclist. Disappointed by her husband’s feeble reaction to the attacker, their relationship further deteriorates. The bespectacled Francis, his long dormant masculinity now ignited, seeks and finally confronts the man, an encounter which ends in the accidental death of the thief.  The violent outcome seems to bring the two together and the wife soon becomes pregnant. But when a menacing blackmailer enters the picture, Francis now must fight for his very manhood. A mesmerizing and unnerving tale.
