What Happened to Monday?
Noomi Rapace, Willem Dafoe and Glenn Close star in this sci-fi thriller set in a future with a drastic one-child policy.
In a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a one-child policy, seven identical sisters (all of them portrayed by Rapace) live a hide-and-seek existence pursued by the Child Allocation Bureau. The Bureau, directed by the fierce Nicolette Cayman (Close), enforces a strict family-planning agenda that the sisters outwit by taking turns assuming the identity of one person: Karen Settman. Taught by their grandfather (Dafoe) who raised and named them - Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday - each can go outside once a week as their common identity, but are only free to be themselves in the prison of their own apartment. That is until, one day, Monday does not come home.
