Reassigned to emergency dispatching duties while awaiting a disciplinary hearing, a sidelined cop (Jakob Cedergren) at the end of his shift gets a frantic call from a woman being abducted by her husband. In a surprising twist, the effort to help her depends on a mistaken assumption about the nature of the crime. Told in real time within the confines of two rooms, director Gustav Möller's taut thriller focuses on a single on-screen character while several others are effectively conveyed by voice alone. A riveting central performance anchors this conceptually accomplished film.
