"Treads the line between the psychological and supernatural, gracefully at first, and then with increasing abandon."

"The scary moments are there, but they take patience. And then they take you by surprise." - Boston Globe

"It's chilly in Oslo, and in this movie, the better to sneak up on you quietly, like an unexpected shiver."

Seattle Times

Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Shortly after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma's powerful attraction. As the semester continutes, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja, feelings she doesn't dare acknowledge, even to herself - while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
