Policeman Tyr and forensic pathologist Iounn are called to the house to investigate. As the case advances, harrowing secrets about the family are revealed. Along with a young policeman Karo, the investigative team quickly realise that the case forces them to face their own suppressed past and opens a Pandora's box to much darker crimes.
