A FILM BY: Gustav Möller
WRITTEN BY: Emil Nygaard Albertsen, Gustav Möller
STARRING: Jakob Cedergren, Jessica Dinnage, Omar Shargawi

Presented as part of THE CHICAGO CRITICS FILM FESTIVAL

When police officer Asger Holm (Jakob Cedergren) is demoted to desk work, he expects a sleepy beat as an emergency dispatcher. That all changes when he answers a panicked phone call from a kidnapped woman who then disconnects abruptly. Asger, confined to the police station, is forced to use others as his eyes and ears as the severity of the crime slowly becomes more clear. The search to find the missing woman and her assailant will take every bit of his intuition and skill, as a ticking clock and his own personal demons conspire against him.
