Overview: "This is the story of Eva, +30, single mother, desperate for money to support herself and her daughter Jenny, tired of surviving on odd jobs like doing night duty at the local hospital, or house cleaning for retired and disabled people. Her real passion is in her painting, and her dream is to be able to survive as an artist, painting full time. Eva and Jenny walks along the banks of the town river, when they suddenly discover a dead body floating along the riverside. Eva runs to the nearest phone booth, but instead of calling the police, she calls her father and asks of his wellbeing. Why? This is the question this character-driven suspense drama sets out to explore. Eva's Eye bears all the marks of the classic human tragedy. It is the story of how any ordinary person can be trapped uncontrollably, if he or she makes a wrong choice and deviates just one small step from the safe path directed by one's own conscience."
