Anna is released from a Polish prison after 15 years. Free at last, she uncompromisingly pursues only one goal: to find a woman named Dorota with whom she seems to have an old score to settle. Her search takes her to a small remote island off Iceland, where this woman now lives with her family in the midst of a Polish community. But what exactly does Anna want from her there, what happened? A gripping thriller in Nordic Noir style. Thrilling from the first minute and with a fantastic cast, especially the great leading actress Olga Boladz, the film also captivates with its wonderfully filmed Icelandic landscape.
