A successful therapist, her troubled client, and an isolated cabin in the woods. Alone and isolated in a vast Scandinavian forest, a therapist begins to read her client' s novel manuscript, only to discover the main character is terrifyingly familiar. . . You are her therapist. Kristina is a successful therapist in central Oslo. She spends her days helping clients navigate their lives with a cool professionalism that has got her to the top. She is your client. But when her client Leah, a successful novelist, arrives at her office clearly distressed, begging Kristina to come to her remote cabin in the woods, she feels the balance begin to slip. But out here in the woods. When Leah fails to turn up to her next two sessions, Kristina reluctantly heads out into the wilderness to find her. Nothing is as it seems. Alone and isolated, Kristina finds Leah' s unfinished manuscript, and as she reads she realises the main character is terrifyingly familiar. . .
