In this beautifully photographed, somber and gritty film from Erik Skjoldbjærg (INSOMNIA), a quiet Norwegian town is terrorized by an unlikely pyromaniac. After a year of military service, Dag (Trond Nilssen, KING OF DEVIL'S ISLAND) returns home to help his father Ingemann (Per Frisch, A SOMEWHAT GENTLE MAN) in his duties as the volunteer fire chief. But it seems that Dag has developed a taste for fire-starting, rather than firefighting, when he begins covertly setting empty homes ablaze. As the fires get bigger and more frequent, a member of the local police force begins an investigation that will reveal the shocking truth to the townspeople. DIR Erik Skjoldbjærg; SCR Bjørn Olaf Johannessen; PROD Aage Aaberge, Edward A. Dreyer. Norway, 2016, color, 98 min. In Norwegian with English subtitles. NOT RATED
