When Eva (Mette Munk Plum) has her first baby, she retreats to a farm on the coast of the Jutland North Sea. She is uneasy when the baby refuses to eat and cries incessantly. A picture of the strict, moralistic grandmother (Bodil Udsen) who raised her watches her silently from the wall. Every so often, the grandmother comes to life and tells Eva dark stories with moral messages. As Eva becomes more worried, she reverts back to her childhood in this suspenseful psychodrama.
