Eva is a young mother who decides to spend a holiday alone with her newborn child on an abandoned farm where once she spent part of her own childhood. Hoping to become the perfect mother, thus following in the footsteps of her mother and grandmother, she finds the past starting to play nightmarish tricks on her. Were things not what she had thought them to be? Old traumas come chillingly back to life.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
