Valley of shadows

1 t 31 m | Norway | 2017

Between the sea and the mountains in a small village in Norway, Aslak (6) lives with his mother Astrid.  A tragic event occurs that Aslak can´t quite understand and Astrid struggles to handle. Aslak´s friend Lasse (10) shows him a macabre scene; three half-eaten sheep killed on a full moon night. Lasse tells Aslak that whatever killed the sheep lives in the dark forest behind their house. In a quest for answers, Aslak ventures into the menacing forest. Is what happens on his journey merely a boy’s imagination or is it reality? Valley of Shadows is a film in the tradition of Scandinavian Gothic fable.
