A cottage somewhere in the mountainous wilderness and props perhaps taken from a horror movie: a creaking old mill, a spider enclosed inside glass, dark-violet nail polish, and a blunt knife... A bored couple on holiday give shelter to a young couple who appear on the doorstep of their house. They all go gathering berries in the forest and they all play games by the fire. The spontaneous young guests begin to wreak havoc on the predictable life of the couple yet are not hurry to return to their journey. What really happened in that cottage house? What emotions were evoked by the mysterious strangers?
