This atmospheric horror with fairy-tale elements follows the gloomy events in a remote village through the eyes of a six-year-old boy. Aslak and his friend discover strangled sheep and the boy then finds out about his older brother running away yet again. Both incidents are ascribed to a werewolf living in the nearby forest. Developing the genre of the Norwegian Gothic, this debut relies on slowly increasing tension and avoids explicit violence.
