A small group of scientists isolated in a Norway base discovers a mysterious rope, seemingly endless, which runs along their observatory and sinks into the forest. Some decide to follow it, others decide to stay. As the innocent expedition gradually turns into a determined quest to unravel this mystery, all will find themselves confronted with the heavy consequences of their choices.
