A group of municipal employees arrive at a picturesque conference center, situated by the lake Kolarsjön at the foot of a mountain. They are there to discuss a controversial project that has angered many, both in the small town and among the employees themselves. What they don’t know is that someone is watching them from the other side of the lake. Someone who wants revenge. And when darkness starts to fall, they begin to disappear – one by one.
The Conference is a blood soaked thriller about the worst teambuilding exercise you could possibly imagine. It’s about the people we have not chosen, but spend most of our waking time with: our colleagues.
