Hoping to reconnect over Christmas, a family of four travels to a remote island in the Danish archipelago, only to find it controlled by members of a strongly religious community living in truce with fierce predators in the woods revealed to be… elves.
Real, monstrous creatures that inspired the folklore and myths we all know. When one day, the girl in the family finds and brings home a baby elf, she inadvertently breaks the truce and throws everyone on the island into a life-or-death battle for faith, family and pure survival.
