Set completely in a snowy landscape, this film intertwines the characteristics of a psychological thriller and drama. According to director Stefano Incerti, this is“a noir of the soul. But a noir in white. Because it’s not set but literally dropped into a constantly snow-filled landscape. A landscape that is not a setting but is the story’s third protagonist. Where I could undo the knots of a killer-less thriller. But which, entwined among the characters’ psychologies, could speak of all our consciences.”
