(You are here)

Kai Koss?

We've been waiting for you.

My condolences.

Just follow me.

I only remember you

from the papers.

How long's it been...

Fifteen, twenty years?


Must be strange to be back

after all these years.

I just stayed put myself.

Married. Kids. Family.


The usual.

One's gotta do something, right?

She's spent a few days

at room temperature...

I've done my best.

- I want her cremated.

- Then I suggest a plain casket.

You'd probably like some time

alone with her, so I'll...


Whatever happened

in the past,

it's best just to say goodbye.

Do it right way.

You're gonna burn now, mom.


Kai Koss.

Damn, you've changed.

My condolences.

Thank you.

The exit, is it, uh...

We didn't find a will

or any letter, so, uh...

you inherit everything.

The house is yours.

And this what she had

on her when she...

- If you want I can come with you.

- No, that's not necessary.

I'm just gonna check

on a few things before I leave, so...

- Which way out?

- Left.

Car crash. Man and wife killed.

Son disappeared

Scream in the waterfall

Boy disappears without a trace



Is everything OK here?


- Wow. What happened here?

- I don't know. Kids, maybe?

What was that?

- Find anything?

- No, no one there.

Someone was here. A window's broken

and there's some beer bottles.

Probably just some kids

with nothing better to do.

Why not

rather sell the house instead?

No, it's not for sale.

There were so many rumours

about this house when I was a kid.

I found it insanely creepy.

I've been thinking

someone should have...

But you know how it is,

one's not supposed to interfere...

Look, that's illegal.

So I'll have to be the cop now.

I'm taking these with me.

They've thrown me a surprise party.

Nothing's changed here.

Don't you remember me?

Can I help you?

Do you have a room?


but one has to book in advance.

Plus, we're closing. End of season.

The hotel is a construction site.

Everything's chaos.

Total chaos.

Could you recommend

somewhere else?


Yes, I see.

He's standing right in front of me.

He'll move in here.

She had quite an appetite,

your mother.

Practically ate for two.

Did you know that there's a short cut

between the hotel and the house?

Can I bill it to the room?

Unfortunately, no.

Let's just say it's on the house.

I like you.

Always did.


I needed to change crowds. It's

my birthday, I can do as I please.


You seem to have done well.

And you?

Man, house, dog and all that?

No. Far from it.

I've checked your record.


And what say the papers of truth?

Four orphanages, -

three foster care families.

"Otherwise, the boy is

on his best behaviour. "

Just so you know, -

- there are some who aren't

too fond of you coming back.

What really happened that night?

You've read the reports, right?

Maybe a hundred times.

- Good night, Sara.

- Good night.

Did you know that you're staying

in the same room as Peter did?



Guest register

We have seen the waterfall.

It is bigg.

- Let's sleep here tonight.

- No way!


Let's sleep here now then!


Come on.

Hey, where are you going?


Stian, f*** this.

Enough already.

I want to go home.

Sh*t, look. Broken glass!

When I was a boy scout...

Sara, we've found their tent.

The camp fire is still burning.

Maybe they're just

f***ing with us?


Hi, it's me, Sara.

- Did I wake you?

- Yes.

Can you come to the house

right away?

I need to talk to you

about something.

- Hello?

- Yes.

Something's happened.
