Oskar is a lonely, bullied teenage boy living with his mother on a housing estate on the edge of town. When a young girl called Eli moves in next door, Oskar finds a kindred spirit and the two become devoted friends. Eli doesn’t go to school and never leaves her flat in the daytime. She has also been a teenager for a very long time…
Coinciding with Eli’s arrival, a series of inexplicable disappearances and murders begin to rock the neighbourhood.
