A strange white wall is found deep underground, at the mining site of the world’s largest nuclear waste depository.
Project director Lars Rapp (Aksel Hennie) wants to keep it a secret, but rumours spread quickly in the small town that has sprung up around the site.
The depository is already years behind schedule and nuclear waste is piling up, stored in temporary containers.
Completion of the facility is Lars’ life’s work, so he has no intention of postponing the approaching opening ceremony. However, Lars and his team soon realise that the wall is not made of any material known to man.
He has to make a decision that may well be the most important in the history of mankind. Should they leave the wall alone? Or should they try to see what’s behind it?
