Inspired by movies like Shutter Island and Deliverance, a group of Swedish teenagers  have just left high school and feel the vast adulthood spreading out in front of them. Madde (Felice Jankell) just wants to get away from both her surroundings, and herself. When her cousin invites her to come along on a

group canoe trip, she accepts the offer, hoping it will provide her with the tranquility she so desperately needs. But what lies in wait for her in the vast wilderness is anything but peaceful. Directed by Magnus Hedberg (Sweden, 2015).
