Early one summer morning a young man, Jens, emerges from the forest carrying a heavy duffel bag. Entering the charming little village of Schandelsmillen he asks around for work, but the villagers are not very forthcoming, especially since the season has already started. After meeting the mayor’s daughter Lucy and spending a night with her, the villagers’ attitude suddenly changes. He is offered a job as a farmhand. When two policemen pass through the village looking for a man implicated in a casino robbery and fail to recognise him, Jens figures he has found the perfect cover. Were it not for that lingering sensation that something is not quite right. As he is gradually accepted into the community, he catches glimpses of something dark lurking beneath the village’s surface. Discovering that years earlier a villager has mysteriously disappeared from the face of the earth. When he eventually re-emerges, it is already too late. He has, quite literally, become another person.
