Knocking | Knackningar
Synopsis: Molly is moving into her new apartment after a tragic accident when a strange noise from the upper floor turns everything upside down. The ever-increasing knocking almost sounds like morse code, but when she confronts her neighbours, no one can hear what she is hearing. Everyone starts questioning Molly, and before she knows it, she is thrust into a quest for the truth.
