The Guest (2019)
After opening your front door to a guest, your whole life changes, facing an unexpected destiny. The guest, who sits with you at your dinner table, turns your life upside down. The happy moment you have been waiting for, turns into a confrontation with an enemy. The enemy is not as far away as you thought; he is siting now with you at your dinner table, praising your wife and hitting on your daughter. He is smiling at you and giving you his present…the present of death.
