Dark Idyll

When her mother moves in with her new boyfriend Thomas, it looks like everything could work out perfectly for Teresa, who is secretly in love with Thomas’ son Leo. But their new house by the canal seems to be ill-starred: the four-year-old son of the family who lived there before them disappeared without trace a while ago. To make things worse, Leo falls for the mysterious and capricious Elisabeth. But there is good reason for Elisabeth’s unhappiness; she is the sister of boy who disappeared — the boy everyone now presumes is dead. When two teenagers who used to be close to the little boy die in mysterious circumstances, Teresa decides to start her own investigations. Before long her actions threaten to put her in great danger…
