    Sanctuary

    A young couple live in a nice house at the outskirts of Warsaw. Their painfully boring and run-of-the-mill existence is identical with that of thousands around them. But while spending a weekend in the countryside they discover the dark side of their nature. And it demands a blood offering. Short vacation suddenly turns into a struggle for survival.
