A woman finds herself trapped behind a strange invisible barrier in the middle of the Alpine peaks. Julian Polsler directed this mysterious film full of horror elements; the story is based on a novel by Marlen Haushofer. The initial shock of her situation and the hope for an early rescue gradually fade into a realization that she cannot escape from her prison. Her return to a simpler way of life in the woods, independent from the rest of the world, can be seen as a modern day Robinson Crusoe story, but also as a radical critique of modern society.
