A young woman named Ida disappeared months ago, but the police seem to be getting nowhere. Ida's father, Porath, makes a deal with Ida's boyfriend, Sander: Porath provides Sander with accommodation in an empty apartment, and in return, Sander will tell Ida's father and brother everything that happened in the weeks leading up to her disappearance. But does Sander really reveal everything?

This captivating drama, which also has thriller-like elements, was written by the Norwegian Eskil Vogt, known not only as the screenwriter of numerous Joachim Trier films but also as a director. Angela Bundalovic, known for her role in Nicolas Winding Refn's "Copenhagen Cowboy" series, plays the role of Ida, while her father is portrayed by Zlatko Burić, who was awarded as the Best European Actor last year.
