It is not without dangers, in particular when narrow and shallow but speedily running creeks must be crossed. - When they were teenagers, a boy and girl wandered along this path, and had a sexual relation.

This film in short is about a man who has trekked with his girlfriend in the north of Sweden on a trail called Kungsleden. He later ends his affair but she tells him that they perhaps will meet again on the trail. The whole film concentrates on his search for her on a trek, closing in on her and getting more and more insane as he wanders on.
This film has a creepy atmosphere and you can clearly see a Swedish melancholic vibe here. The tension is slowly rising, until your sitting on the edge of your seat in horror and excitement. Truly an atmospheric horrific thriller Made in Sweden.
