When police officer Asger Holm (Jakob Cedergren) is demoted to deskwork, he expects a sleepy beat as an emergency dispatcher. Everything changes when he answers a panicked phone call from a kidnapped woman. Confined to the police station, Asger is forced to use others as his eyes and ears as the severity of the crime slowly becomes clearer.

This innovative and unrelenting Danish thriller uses a single location to great effect, ratcheting up the tension as twists pile up and secrets are revealed.
