A little girl, missing for a year, is rescued from a disused slaughterhouse. Emaciated, catatonic, she can reveal nothing about her year-long abduction. In hospital, she forms a powerful bond with another girl, Anna. Slowly, she learns to live again. Her ordeal remains a terrible mystery. 15 years later. A young woman – hollow-eyed and wraithlike and mad – slaughters a familIy in their house deep in the woods. Bloody hands trembling, she telephones Anna… The real nightmare is about to begin.
