Four teenage girls get snowed in at a remote cottage. When one of them disappears, their friendship and their deeply buried secrets are laid bare.
Girlfriends Kim, Abby, Feline and newcomer Pippa agree to spend the last days before their final exams at a remote cottage in the Ardennes. What was meant to be a fun girls' weekend soon turns into a living hell. After a party with three guys from a nearby cottage, Feline disappears into thin air. Someone appears to be after them and the atmosphere grows more and more sinister. Do the girls know everything there is to know about one another? How much viciousness can a friendship bear?
