Competition Narrative Films, Norway 2015, 93 Min., engl., norweg., germ. OV, engl. st

In deepest winter in the small Norwegian town of Grong, a young girl disappears. Maria’s parents involve the entire village in the search for their daughter. As missing persons announcements go out on radio and TV, Dirk Ohm arrives in the remote community. The German illusionist has driven all the way to the high north. When Maria’s mother asks for his help, Ohm is initially reticent – he’s good at creating the illusion of something which isn’t there, but he can’t see things that are hidden. But he soon begins to feel oddly close to Maria. He increasingly injects himself into the search and the village community – which leads to suspicion. The film does not attempt to explain the circumstances surrounding the real disappearance of the illusionist in 2003. Instead it uses the incident as a jumping off point for an associative alliance of magical images from an imposing landscape.
