They both are facing financial crisis and also want to take life insurance and it can only happen when one of them is passed. So they both decided to take a trip to the mountains and take a cabin to stay.
But their life changed when 3 inmates entered their house or cabin and tied up both husband and wife. These three prisoners are Dave, Petter and Roy and wanted to hide as they escaped and wanted to hide in a safe place and they made these couples hostages.
At that moment one of the inmates Dave threats Lars for rape but Lisa handles the situation by offering them a lot of money for both of their release because they don’t wanted to end each other like this.
While inmates accepted Lisa’s offer and left Lisa and Lars tied in a room and enjoying their cabin. Meanwhile Lisa and Lars started to figure out how they can free themselves from these people and told them that they wanted to go to the toilet.
When Roy is knocked down by Lars and the couple start to run, inmates hear the voice of chain break and start finding them. When the couple is discovered again by Roy, Lisa's husband fires him on Roy’s head so they can’t be followed by him.

However, the rope unfortunately stuck on Lars leg which made him to die and now Lisa has to decide whether he wanted to save his husband or not because finally the time came as she is close to her life insurance but shows her love towards Lars and saves him which is opposite to the starting condition.

At that time they felt that they were alive but broken from inside as they wanted to kill each other without knowing the current situation in which both of them save each other and it shows how they love each other in any situation.
