Creative couple Stine (Marie Bach Hansen, The Last Vermeer) and Teit (Mikkel Boe Følsgaard, Land of Mine SCA16, A Royal Affair) have decided to leave the urban life in Copenhagen behind, and with their young son Nemo, retreat to a remote cabin in the middle of a Swedish forest. Trading the comforts of the city for a new life in a sustainable shelter, they hope to reignite the spark in their relationship and find themselves as individuals, while documenting their new lifestyle in a podcast series. 

One day Nemo disappears into the woods, but when he is later found, he is strangely frightened of Stine, insisting that she is not his mother. As their new surroundings begin to become increasingly hostile, old grudges and selfish desires begin to take over, forcing them to confront their own egos. 

A layered and haunting dramatic thriller with a supernatural element, Danish director Karoline Lyngbye’s slick feature film debut reflects on the couple’s fears, desires and the importance of trust.

More layered than your average supernatural thriller.
