Synopsis

Psychological thriller about a brother's search for the truth behind his sister's death. Danish Journalist Jacob (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) is slowly coming to terms with his sister Julie (Lotte Bergstrom)'s suicide attempt. Now disabled and wheelchair-bound, Julie has developed a relationship with an internet friend, Ankar (Nicolas Bro), and, amidst doubts from Jacob, announces her intention to marry him. Tragedy strikes on their wedding night, however, when Julie is found dead in the bath of their hotel room, apparently having committed suicide. Months later, still consumed by doubts, Jacob finally tracks Anker down to the village of Murk, an isolated, rural community. Here he is shocked to learn that Ankar is soon to wed again. Not only that, but his future bride, Hanne (Laerke Winther Andersen), is a disabled woman. Frantically trying to alert Hanne's unbelieving sister Sonya (Anne Sophie Byder) to the danger, and with the local community closing ranks, Jacob tries to uncover the truth before it's too late.
