“Do you want to make me desperate?”

Alissa smiles, “Yes. Don’t say anymore.”

Alone in a hotel, Elisabeth is being watched. After the loss of her baby, Elisabeth, haunted by grief, withdraws from reality to convalesce. Captivated by her presence, hotel guests Max Thor and Stein observe her trance-like state. But when Max’s young wife Alissa arrives, the veneer of rest and recuperation comes crashing down. In the confines of this desolate place, Max, Alissa and Stein enter into a dangerous game with their fragile companion.
