David Andernach (Mads Mikkelsen) is a successful artist, when a tragic accident changes his entire life. As he visits his beautiful neighbour, his daughter Leonie drowns in the pool. Plagued by guilt, David loses control of his life; his wife Maja (Jessica Schwarz) cannot forgive him and he is on the verge of suicide when he discovers a hidden door. It brings him to the all-deciding moment, allowing him to save his daughter after all. But the past bears dark secrets and the new beginning turns into a horror scenario…
