The opening images set a brooding tone: a man on foot, gazing at dark, scarcely inhabited mountains. He’s about to investigate a string of child disappearances and will soon cross paths with a woman looking into murders in the same, intensely secretive village. These intertwined cases keep turning up references to a horrific local legend, the supernatural “soul eater”. But wasn’t this just a myth parents used to scare the young?
