“Mama” The Film
Once upon a time … begins the story.
A car sits in front of a house where a news report is talking about the financial meltdown of 2008. An item comes up about a shooting at the investment firm of Capt Villiers Holdings where one partner is reported dead at the site, and another is in critical condition while a third, Jeffrey Desange, is reported missing. A lone gunshot is heard as the scene shifts to a bedroom inside the house where a three year-old girl is seen standing by a crib. She goes toward the door carrying a stuffed animal as her father busts in looking disheveled, blood on his collar. Her name is Victoria and Jeffrey Desange is her father. He goes toward the crib and reaches in taking Victoria’s little sister, Lilly, into his arms. Victoria asks if her mother will be taking her to school that morning. Jeffrey says her mother is sick and can’t do it. Jeffrey reaches for Victoria’s glasses and instructs her to put them on, taking her hand throwing the stuffed animal down on the floor as he walks out of the room carrying Lilly. They go downstairs where the family Dachshund Handsome watches as Jeffrey takes the girls out of the house, leaving the door open. On an icy road, Jeffrey is behind the wheel of his car speeding while Victoria and Lilly are in the backseat, Victoria concerned for her father. Holding onto LIlly, Victoria obsrves Jeffrey is driving too fast to which Jeffrey smiles somewhat darkly and puts his foot on the gas increasing his speed. Jeffrey yells at Victoria to be quiet as he looses control of the car, putting into a spin and running it off the road and down a steep decline. Back at the house police and emergency workers are outside when a car pulls up and a lone figure gets out. He breaches the yellow crime scene tape encountering a police officer who instructs him to get back. The man introduces himself as Lucas Desange and the house is his brothers. The cop tells Lucas to stay put but Lucas is concerned about Victoria and Lilly and attempts to get past the officer who tells hiim to stay put. Lucas looks toward the house knowing something is wrong.
The car radio reports both of Jeffrey’s victims are dead and Jeffrey has absconded with his daughters after murdering their mother. Jeffrey abandons the car that is wedged against a tree. Jeffrey carries Lilly and holds Victoria’s hand as they take off walking throug a forest where snow continues to fall. Jeffrey doesn’t answer Victoria when she asks if they are at their destination. They continue through the trees as Victoria tells her father her glasses are broken. Jeffrey doesn’t hear as they come upon a house sitting alone. On a placque on the house is the word “Helvicia.” Jeffrey approaches still carrying Lilly and tentatively opens the door. He glances in then turns back to instruct Victoria to come to him even though she tells him she saw someone inside. Reluctantly Victoria goes to her father who takes her hand and enters the house. Once inside Jeffrey sits the girls down on a couch as he breaks up some old furniture to make a fire to warm the girls. Jeffrey begins taking stock of what the house has in it when he notices a rat sitting on the open oven door. Dispondent Jeffrey tries to find a quiet place away from the girls. Victoria gets up to go to the window to look outside where she sees something moving. Jeffrey collapses against the wall, sliding down sobbing. He holds the gun he used earlier to kill his co-workers and his wife, placing it up to his head as Victoria tells him about a woman outside, and who is not touching the ground. Jeffrey comes up behind Victoria carrying the gun as he kneels down. Victoria asks why Jeffrey is crying to which Jeffrey tries to explain about how moms and dads sometimes have a hard time making things work. He touches Victoria’s face then removes her glasses making her vision blurry. Jeffrey tells Victoria he loves her as he glances down at the gun, a tear rolling from his eye, down his nose to fall on the barrel. Victoria asks what he’s holding and trying to distract her, he tells Victoria to look outside. Sobbing harder Jeffrey raises the gun up to the back of Victoria’s head. Then suddenly Jeffrey is snatched up as Victoria watches, her vision blurred and not sure what is happening to Jeffrey. Whatever snatched up Jeffrey takes him ouside, then later as night has fallen and Victoria has taken Lilly to sit in front of the fire, a cherry is rolled toward her. Victoria picks it up and looks toward where she hears a groan come from a darkened part of the house. A figure is moving in the darkness as the title comes up.
