Film description

A great family. A shiny car. A beautiful two-storey apartment with a housekeeper in charge. Jim has everything, life is a real success. Now, however, he may lose it all, as he unexpectedly gets dismissed from his well-paid corporate position.

His pride prevents him from telling his wife and daughter about his defeat, so he just pretends that nothing has happened. But the true cannot be hidden forever; Internet speculations and driving people around the city is not enough to fill the growing overdraft on the bank account. Jim is gradually losing control of reality, and old, terrifying demons speak again in his head. The safe familiar space among the streets and glass skyscrapers turns into a cold, hostile labyrinth – every day more and more difficult to escape from. "Repossession" is an extremely evocative urban story about the horror of expectations and the pressure of success.
