A Film by Nicole Scherer


On their way up to a mountain cabin Sarah and Thomas run into a dense mist and seem to go astray in the dangerous altitudes. In search of the
cabin they encounter increasingly strange events. Lost in those heights, eventually a life-threatening battle between reality and illusion begins, which ends fatally.
