    • Synopsis
    • An abandoned sanatorium is deteriorating in an isolated forest. The elderly janitor is there to make sure that any unauthorized persons don’t access the dangerous building before it is demolished. Five contract workers have taken on the task of tracking the huge building for hazardous waste. Over 300 rooms and kilometres of pipelines have to be screened in three days. They realize that the job is more than a search for asbestos and mercury when they encounter the building's frightening past. Water is gushing from the old pipes, and brings the work to a halt. An attempt to close the water intake leads them to the dark lake of "Villmark", where a horrific event from WW2 rises to the surface.
