Synopsis

The police officer Asger Holm is demoted to deskwork, he expects a sleepy beat as an emergency dispatcher. That all changes when he answers a panicked phone call from a kidnapped woman who then disconnects abruptly. Asger, confined to the police station, is forced to use others as his eyes and ears. The search to find the missing woman and her assailant will take every bit of his intuition and skill, as a ticking clock and his own personal demons conspire against him.

Director statement

“I believe that the strongest images in film, the ones that stay with you the longest, they are the ones you don’t see. […] My vision with making The Guilty has been to make a suspenseful and character-driven thriller, but more than that to make a film that gives every single audience member a completely unique experience.”
