Copenhagen police officer Asger (Jakob Cedergren) has been temporarily assigned to answering emergency calls in a police call centre. One of these calls is from a woman who claims she is being kidnapped. It then becomes a desperate race against time for the desk bound Asger. Like the 2013 film Locke, this is essentially just one man and a phone, yet this tightly constructed thriller racks up the tension in a way that most American thrillers can only dream of.
