SYNOPSIS

Captured by the US military in Afghanistan, Mohammed is transported to a secret  detention center in Europe. When the vehicle he is riding in crashes, he  finds himself suddenly free and on the run in a snow-blanketed forest, a world  away from the desert home he knew. Relentlessly pursued by an army that does not  officially exist, Mohammed must confront the necessity to kill in order to survive... From the director of FOUR NIGHTS WITH ANNA, THE LIGHTSHIP, MOONLIGHTING, THE SHOUT and THE DEPARTURE.
