On her way to church in the hazy alpine village of Avechot, the quiet 15-year-old, Anna Lou, daughter of a religious couple, vanishes into thin air, never to return home. To aid in the investigation of this puzzling case is summoned the fastidious Detective Vogel with the questionable methods; however, amidst a full-scale media storm and half-baked leads, no one is above suspicion, villagers and newcomers alike. But is Anna Lou's troubling disappearance a case of an adolescent tantrum only days before Christmas, or is there a wolf in sheep's clothing, hiding in the otherwise peaceful community? Written by Nick Riganas

Did You Know?


The film's nomination for a David di Donatello in the Best Original Screenplay category was a source of confusion among critics and fans, as director Donato Carrisi ostensibly adapted his own novel, first published in 2015. This led Carrisi to clarify that the screenplay is technically original because it predates the book, even though the film came out later. See more »


Agente Vogel: Someone took her. Let's stop tiptoeing around it and call a spade a spade, or we'll waste time, and that time belongs to Anna Lou.

Engrossing but ultimate letdown
26 September 2020 | by muso-10See all my reviews

This was a beautifully crafted movie which kept me engaged all the way to the end.

However, about that end ... there were way too many twists and too many questions left unanswered. And the very last twist came from left field with nothing to substantiate it.

I was left asking too many questions.

If you want to get wrapped up in a movie and enjoy the ride, this is a good one for that. However, the ultimate destination is confusing and unsatisfying.
