The year is 1595 and the Russo-Swedish war has just come to an end. Brothers Knut and Eerik are serving on the border as part of a border recognition treaty detachment. During their mission, they commit an atrocious act that ends with the death of a young girl. Tailed by her ghost, they wander in what seems like a never-ending wasteland, until they reach an isolated village. Reminiscent of ?Stalker? and ?Cabin Fever? Anti-Jussi Annila’s second feature film does not resort to cheap spooks, relying instead on subtlety and suggestion to deliver a genuinely chilling tale of sin and retribution.
