It’s a slow night at an emergency call center for Asger, a police officer demoted to desk duty; but after receiving a panicked call from a kidnapped woman, he’s forced into action. From the confines of the office, he must unravel the mystery of a terrible crime, racing against the clock and fighting his own personal demons. In his debut feature, Gustav Möller restricts the pulse-pounding action to a single claustrophobic location, delivering a chamber thriller of great innovation and verve. A Magnolia Pictures release
