Demoted to deskwork and awaiting a disciplinary hearing, Agent Asger is working the night shift in an emergency call room. When he receives a call from a woman who has been abducted his resolve and arrogance are tested, and it becomes a race against time to locate her. Taking place in real time and in a single location nothing is quite as it seems in this claustrophobic thriller. Using sound as the primary storytelling tool and featuring a powerful central performance from Jakob Cedergren, The Guilty is a visceral viewing experience.
