Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
This low-budget, first feature-length film by Danish Film School graduate Kristian Levring is set in an unknown country where a new army recruit is assigned the task of escorting a prisoner to a stockade. The recruit is gun shy to the extreme, so when the two of them are attacked by bandits, the prisoner himself has to grab the recruit's gun and defend them against certain death. Even though a kind of camaraderie is present between the two men as they head across the desert to the stockade, both know that the prisoner will be brutally interrogated and then executed. That knowledge affects their journey and its unexpected ending.
