"Deep within a dark and twisted New Zealand forest a group of young people play a fast and furious game of 'hide and seek'.

In a spectacular climax the mystery begins to unravel as everything becomes painfully clear - the shocking truth is far worse than could ever been imagined"--Container

Henrik and Karin are musicians, both locked in grief over the death of wife and mother Anna two years earlier.
