Short documentary, 1995, 55 min.

Documentary based on penetrating interviews with three men who committed incest. The men portrayed, who have now all been sentenced, have for years sexually abused their daughters without anyone in their immediate vicinity being aware of it. In the film they talk about what drive them to it and unfold a detailed picture of their warped view of reality and their refusal to accept that they made their daughters victims of their obsessions. Director Hans Otten does not show the men, but uses house interiors as a cinematographic device to link the everyday life of the culprit to his hidden life in the intimacy of the family.
