Jonas Kærup Hjort, Denmark, 2020

110 min.DK/FeatureDrama

One fatal day our main character, the Water Inspector, enters a grim building in a desolated area. Soon he finds himself trapped inside, not being able to get out, facing a dark spiral of absurd incidents set in motion by the residents of the building. Pushed around and tested by the many residents, he loses track of himself and his humanity, leaving him more animal than human.
