A young woman moves to her mother's native village. She is looking for her father whose identity her mother never revealed before she died. The swamps around the village are dark and brooding like the places and the people. Only her strange neighbour in the abandoned dairy opens up to her. But soon she doubts him too: Is he the murderer of the girls that have gone missing? The audience constantly has to fear for the heroine as her search for identity turns into a search for a killer.
