Director Gilles Marchand and writer Dominik Moll will partake in a post-screening Q&A.

Young brothers Tom and Benjamin travel to Sweden to spend their vacation with their estranged father (Jérémie Elkaïm), who they have barely seen since their parents divorced. Tom, the younger of the two, has a premonition that something bad will happen. Their strange and solitary father is unable to sleep.

He insists that Tom, like him, has a gift for feeling things which aren’t quite normal. Tom’s frightening visions set the stage for the bizarre and terrifying events to follow, when the three head to a house in a vast remote forest. (Notes by Marie-Pierre Richard)

Director’s note: Gilles Marchand delivers an enthralling, subtle film, leaving us with no final resolution and many unanswered questions.
