Experiencing Interruptions?

The Age-Old Forest

Daniela (Helena Gomes) returns from a six-month trip in Asia, only to find herself bored and craving for another adventure. Her brother Patrik (Jiri Rantanen) talks her into a weekend of camping and trekking with their friends Aleksandra (Elaine Banks), the photographing glamper, Samuel (Jussi Salminen), the fun one who's ready for anything, and Alisa (Ida Puustinen), the office woman, who hasn't packed any proper shoes, since all she owns is office gear.
The group heads deep into the Finnish forest, en route for an off the beaten track destination, The Devil's Lake.
Everything starts off good, but the further they venture into the unknown, the stranger their journey gets. From finding a strange cabin in the middle of nowhere, to hearing ominous sounds coming from afar, they slowly start to realise someone's constantly watching them. Hours turn into days, and they have no way of getting back home.
