The Ladder

Norwegian with English Subtitles

Johan maintains a salmon ladder alone in the woods. He is subjected to an accident in the river, which he believes is caused by a mysterious female figure he sees immediately after the fall. Johan will have to cope overnight and is pursued by the woman through his dreams, and the distinction between imagination and reality is becoming increasingly fluid. Inspired by nordic folklore, the film re-imagines the tales of the lady of the forest.
