As a fatal flu virus devastates Europe, Jacques, a young man from the city, takes refuge in the French Alps. Ill-equipped to survive the harsh winter, things only get worse when Kara, armed and dangerous, breaks into his house and commandeers his dwindling food supplies.
His inept plan to get rid of her disintegrates when outsiders invade the house, turning his captor into his only ally. A siege ensues and Jacques learns there is more to the relationship between Kara and the assailants.
But time is running out for all of them as supplies run low and the deadly flu virus spreads through the house. Forced to confront his new reality, Jacques must choose a side or take things into his own hands if he hopes to survive.
An ice cold thriller, Hendrik Faller’s feature debut is an action packed look at human nature in times of crisis.
