Anders Morgenthaler, Denmark, 2007

80 min.DK/Feature

Simon is a police officer who recently lost custody of his six-year old son in a divorce. In desperation, he abducts his son and takes him to the country where they hide out in a vacated summerhouse. Simon wants to spend one last holiday alone with his son, but their week together brings back a nightmare from his own childhood, reviving bad memories, and soon the ghosts from his past threaten to drive Simon mad.

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.
