A few days after Christmas, half-sisters Ida and Tuva set out on a winter dive in a remote part of the Norwegian coastline. This family tradition, beloved by Tuva, inspired her to take up diving professionally. Ida, on the other hand, still bears the emotional scars from a brush with death when they were kids.

Determined to strengthen their sisterly bond, Ida agrees to rekindle the tradition—but towards the end of the dive, a rockslide traps Tuva under water. As Ida surfaces to call for help, she discovers that the rockslide has struck above water as well, burying their equipment, phones and car keys. They are completely cut off from any chance of outside rescue. As the frantic race for survival unfolds, Ida is put to the ultimate test of character and ingenuity, where understanding physics and physiology are essential to figuring their way out of this. During Ida's fight to save Tuva, a fractured sisterhood is exposed, and when all seems lost, the stakes are revealed to be higher than mere survival in this edge-of-your-seat adventure.  D: Joachim Hedén, Sweden, subtitled, 2020, 1h35m
