Isolated from the outside world, six people take turns in confessing their secrets. With nowhere to go and nowhere to hide, they apparently expose more and more of their hidden selves. But as a disclosure has become a media phenomenon, it isn’t easy to tell how little is being revealed and what awful secrets remain concealed.
Like Big Brother meets Forced Entertainment, Confession time is as unsettling as it is engaging. We are drawn into its fragmented narratives and sublime, revealing dance sequences, yet can never be certain about the truth of the confessions, nor the relationships of the individuals.
