A dysfunctional husband (Hennie) and wife (Rapace) head to a remote lakeside cabin under the guise of reconnecting, but each has secret designs to kill the other. Before they can carry out their respective plans, unexpected visitors arrive and the couple is faced with a far greater danger than anything they could have plotted.
