Modern horror story based on the latest science – this could almost happen to anyone!

There is a slightly unconventional family, including a more than a little unconventional daughter with some very, very unconventional thoughts. Something uncanny creeps into their lives, as these seemingly inexplicable injuries appear on the children. Something dangerous and freaky seems to be at large… With the first signs of violence, a horrible question arises: Who is trying to cruelly damage the family? Is it an external threat – or could it be someone… or something… from the inside?

Strangers Inside is a modern horror story, but also a stunning, gripping and frightening description of crooked family dynamics. The story is delivered by three different narrator voices, all of them having their blind points of view. Is the ultimate enemy, ripping the family slowly apart, coming from the circle of people that are closest to you?
