Fleeing through a snow-clad forest, Aziz desperately tries to keep up with the burly Olek. A hopeless mission. Will Aziz get by on instinct? Imaginative escape drama with a spectacular denouement.

Escorted by wailing sirens, Aziz and Olek dash across an empty plain. The Dutch-speaking Aziz clearly does not know the terrain. Desperately, he tries to keep up with his burly companion, no matter how often the latter tells him to get lost. In a snow-clad and misty forest, Aziz drops behind after all. All alone, he is left to his own gut feeling. But perhaps this comes quite naturally to him. Escape drama, shot in blue and grey hues, with a surprising and spectacular denouement.
