As their vacation fun begins, an intruder is waiting patiently to break into the house. The man interrupts the calmness and the atmosphere turns heavy. No more relax, no more laughter.

It´s easy during this film to put yourself in the skin of the captive woman. We feel her pain as the tree branches lacerate her arms and legs, as she walks near her abductor who looks at her the way a jackal would look at its prey. We feel the fear and desperation taking control of her.
The director Darisha Beresford chose the perfect team to make this story look so realistic. Arnold Goindhan as the thief who turned deadly kidnapper, trying to save his own life as bigger criminals are looking for him and the money he owes them. The actress Lisa-Bel Hirschmann the beauty in danger, who needs to keep strong and even try to show some sympathy towards his captor.
