A high-rise building near the forest is famous for its carefully-curated community. It’s near impossible to get in. But when a dog disappears and her daughter refuses to leave the bathroom, security officer Anna faces an absurd battle against an invisible threat, one that spreads slowly amongst the residents to rattle and dismantle this utopia with a view.
