Het Smelt
Het Smelt still


Thirteen years after a sweltering summer that got completely out of hand, 26-year-old Eva returns to her home village with a block of ice in the trunk of her car. Gradually it becomes clear that this time she determines the action and that she will settle once and for all with the cloudy past.
