The Hidden 
Our story begins in the forsaken highlands of Iceland, when six American geologists arrive to prepare a building of a dam. Trapped in a remote valley, the team falls prey to what Icelanders know as hidden people – mythological creatures that are not just relegated to the pages of folklore and fiction in Iceland, but believed to be Eve’s dirty children. Therefore, people of Iceland treat them with fearful respect and avoid conflict with them at any cost. But as the dam will destroy their home, the hidden people begin pushing back against the Americans.

Reykjavík 1984. Sara, a recently divorced host of a daily radio show, is having serious problems with her ex, Baldur. He doesn’t seem to be letting it go, drinking and aggressively checking in on her and their son, the six-year old Adam. But when Sara has to unexpectedly take the nightshift at the radio, forced to bring her son along, things quickly go from bad to worse. Baldur starts calling repetitively, angry that she’s talking about their son to her listeners. And later during the rainy autumn night, Baldur breaks into the radio station and a cat-and-mouse chase around the dark rooms of the empty building commences, where Sara must hide Adam from her ex. But when Adam suddenly disappears, presumably after Baldur kidnapped him, and the police get involved, we begin suspecting that all is not what it seems.
