Synopsis

A dark and disturbing film based on all too real events. Over a period of only five years, nearly 80 young people have hung themselves in the Welsh town of Bridgend since 2007, leaving no suicide notes or other explanations to why they have chosen to put an end to their young lives. A tragedy and a mystery that hangs heavy and silently over the small town as the perpetual fog when the young Sara moves there. Her father has been sent to Bridgend to clarify what is going on and, to his growing concern, Sara soon joins a secret society among the city's youth, who play out their eerie fascination with death through morbid rituals and a mysterious, closed chat forum.
