Main program

Babycall / Pål Sletaune

Anna and her 8-year-old son, Anders, are on the run from Anders’ violent father. They move to a secret address in a giant apartment building. Anna is terrified that her ex-husband will find them, so she buys a babycall to make sure Anders is safe while he sleeps. But strange noises come through the babycall from elsewhere in the building. Anna overhears what she believes is the murder of a child. Meanwhile, Anders acquires a mysterious new friend, who comes and goes as he wants. Does Anders’ friend know something about the sounds on the babycall? Why is there blood on Anders’ drawing? Are Anna and Anders still in danger?
