An icy mountain landscape, a gloomy village, a remote clinic. During her internship in a spiritual clinic in the Allgäu, the young psychology student Lea immerses herself in a mysterious world of unorthodox therapy methods and demonic customs. Increasingly compulsively, Lea follows the dark pull of the place that surrounds her and more and more encapsulates her from the outside world. She quickly finds herself in a dangerous maelstrom of manipulation, abuse and violence. Soon the vague line between intern and patient begins to become completely blurred for Lea.
