PORCELAIN is a dark fairy-tale for our time. It confronts the illusion of control and shatters it like porcelain crashing on the floor.
Paul is a businessman who leaves nothing to chance. He has created an ecosphere of fantastic material wealth for his son Thomas and wife Anna by tearing apart businesses, and together they all live safely on the top floor of a high-rise building. But when Thomas becomes ill, without explanation and seemingly without a cure, the first cracks appear in their perfect lives. Paul tries to keep control, while the world he has created starts to crumble around him...
