On a vacation in Tuscany, a Danish family befriends a Dutch family. Months later the Danish couple receives an invitation to visit the Dutch and decide to go for the weekend. However, it doesn't take long before the joy of reunion is replaced by misunderstandings. Things gradually get out of hand, as the Dutch turn out to be something different than what they have pretended to be.

This horror thriller movie navigates through the topics of human relationships and our learned ways of behaving. We are programmed in how to respond to certain situations and not trigger anyone to think less of us. But this time, that might not be such a smart thing to do. Sometimes a little social unpleasantness could be a smart direction to take.
