Because you’re mine
Julia and Tom’s marriage has broken down and they share joint custody of their 8-year-old daughter Anni. Six months after the divorce, Julia is initially annoyed by the unreliability of the child’s father, who does not keep agreements.
When he causes a car accident in which Anni is injured, the annoyance turns into serious concern as incidents with Tom pile up. He even forgets a long-planned joint vacation with Anni, from which she suffers greatly. Finally, Julia applies for sole custody.
Through Tom’s perspective, the custody dispute appears in a completely different light. Bit by bit Tom realizes that he is the victim of a devious plan: Julia systematically prevents his attempts to be a reliable father and deliberately manipulates her daughter until she finally rejects him vehemently herself.
