Please help.
We don't know what's going on.
People are dying outside.
Help! No.

It's happening in Vordingborg, too.
We aren't allowed to go outside or talk to anyone who's been outside stay inside, so nothing happens Mom? Sirens are blaring, this is NOT an exercise Why are all these weird things here? It's a place from Dad's work.
Why is there an underground bunker? Because we're safe from the rain down here.
- Would you like a cup of cocoa, sweetie? - Why aren't you nervous? What's up with the rain? Don't worry about it.
I'm looking out for you.
Hey, don't think about all that stuff.
I don't like it here.
Let's just have a nice time.
Mom's making hot cocoa.
There's nothing to be afraid of.
Can Dad's suit withstand the rain? Is that Dad? It can't be Dad.
Dad can let himself in.
Who else would it be? - We have to open the door.
- What if he can't open the door? It's really dangerous.

I can't do this without you.
Please come back.
I never should have opened the door.
Help! Help! Do it now.
We're not ready.
By the time you're ready, he'll be dead.
Do it now, Frederik.
The calculations say it works.
I won't inject my son with something I haven't researched thoroughly.
No, but you know everything there is to know.
You have to try.
- We don't know if it's a mutagen.
- Are we afraid that it'll kill him? He's dying! All the calculations say it works.
You showed me the simulations.
- But they're simulations.
- That simulate reality! Do it now, Frederik.
We need to get hold of Dad and he'll be here as soon as he works this out.
How do we get hold of him? Your phone doesn't work.
There are other bunkers.
- If there are other bunkers - Are there people in them? We'll find out.
There must be some way of connecting to the other bunkers.
We have a connection to the other bunkers.
Is Dad there? Maybe.
Come on.
There must be other people in the bunkers.
Think they're gonna answer? Come on.
- Doesn't it work? - Come on! Shit! Why does it have to be so fucking hard? There must be some standard way of communication.
- A phone or - A walkie-talkie? Yeah, exactly.
They must have thought of something.
If you live in a bunker, there must be a walkie-talkie.
Yes, that's a brilliant idea.
Or a phone.
Or WiFi.
Rasmus? Yes.
- Rasmus? - Yes.
- What happened? - I thought it was a walkie-talkie.
I really hope not.
This isn't a walkie-talkie.
It's a vacuum cleaner.
Get down.
Research kit And here mobile field com.
It's a radio! Thank you.
No battery.
Does it work? We'll make it work.
Anything? Okay, it's working.
Hello? - Hello? - Anyone? Not yet.
Hello? Hello? Hello! Say something if you hear me.
Hello! Come in! - Hello.
- Hello? Is anyone there? - What? - Is it Dad? We can hear you.
What? Hello! Hello.
- I can barely - Are you there? I made contact before.
Come on.
They can't hear you.
We have to get a better connection, Rasmus.
- Go place the antenna close to the door.
- I'm not going outside.
Not outside, but as far as you can.
We need to establish a connection.
You can do it.
That's it.
That's it.
Hello? A bit more.
It's getting better now.
Go up the steps.
A bit more.
A bit more, Rasmus.
It's getting better.
Can you hear me now? I hear you.
It's working.
Come back, Rasmus.
Hello? - Can you hear me? - Yes.
Okay, you've got to help us.
My name's Simone, and I'm with my brother Rasmus in a bunker.
What's your name? My name is Philip.
We're in an underground bunker.
We don't know what's going on.
What's going on outside? My parents are freaking out upstairs.
I'm in the basement.
They're going crazy.
Someone's trying to fix it.
It's some illness carried by the rain.
I don't know.
 Someone's trying to set up pick-up locations, but I don't know how far we have to go to get away from this.
Philip, our mom's dead, and we can't get in touch with our dad.
We can't call him.
We can't reach him.
We have to get in touch with him.
Can you call him? Call? I think the network's down, but give me his number.
His name is Frederik Andersen.
I'll try, but the world is crazy out here.
I need a few hours.
- Thank you.
- It's crazy out here.
We'll get hold of him, Rasmus.
You're tired, sweetie.
Let's go to bed.
I won't inject my son with something I haven't researched thoroughly.
No, but you know everything there is to know.
You have to try.
Rasmus? Rasmus.
What are you doing? I'm looking for Dad.
- What? - There was someone here.
- Don't get up at night.
- Dad was here.
It was just a dream, sweetie.
He stood there looking at me.
Yeah, okay.
If he'd been here, he'd have taken us with him.
He wouldn't just leave.
No, but Come on, sweetie.
You have to go back to bed.
I'll find you, Dad.
I have to find you.
Understand? I have to find you.
Hello? Simone? - Hello? - Hello? Come in.
- Philip? Can you hear me? - Simone? Yes, I can hear you.
Did you get hold of my dad? No, there's no connection.
I'm not going outside.
People get ill and die.
You say that you're in Vordingborg, right? There's a pick-up location at the hospital.
They're evacuating people and registering survivors.
They must know where your dad is.
Yes A hospital you said? Here? - I can get there.
- No, it's too dangerous to go outside.
I'll try to contact them Hello? - General power outage.
- Philip? - Total shutdown.
- Are you there? - Hello? - Emergency generator initializing.
No! Come on.
Can you hear me? Can you hear me? Rasmus.
Sweetie, wake up.
- Hey.
- What's up? Rasmus, the man on the radio said there's a hospital.
It's not far from here.
They have a pick-up location there.
They'll know where Dad is.
Are you going out there? Yes.
It's our only chance to find Dad.
Can't you send the man on the radio? No, the radio doesn't work anymore.
The power has gone off outside.
Don't go.
Mom died out there.
Rasmus, I'll be okay.
I'll wear the suit.
I don't want to be alone here.
I'll be back.
- It's too dangerous for you to go.
- Why isn't it dangerous for you? Rasmus - I want to wear a suit, too.
- They're too big for you.
- I don't want you to go.
- Rasmus, we have to find Dad.
- Don't do it.
- I have to.
- Rasmus - No! Okay.
I'll stay here.
- You can't do it.
You can't do it.
- Okay.
No one can find Rasmus.
- There's nothing to be afraid of.
- Don't.
He's the key to it all.
Are you ready? The simulations are the same.
I'm going to inject 100 mg now and 100 again in an hour.
The virus should activate within five minutes.
We ought to see results within ten.
No, I'm not doing it at the hospital.
They won't allow it.
Yes, we'll show them the results if if it works.
I'm the only one who can fix this.
I can prevent everyone from dying.
Nothing can happen to him.
It's your responsibility to protect your little brother.
I'm sorry.
I'll do as you say.
We won't go up.
But then you have to keep your promise.
Come back.
Fix all this.
Okay? I'm just so afraid that there's only me and Rasmus now.
Just the two of us.
But I'll I'll look after him.
Why are we planting this? Don't you think things are supposed to grow here? Simone? How long do we have to stay here? We'll have to wait for Dad.
When is he coming back? Well, Rasmus, soon.
And then will everything be okay? Yes, then everything will be okay.
It's not nice down here.
That's why we have to make it nice, right? How? How? Well, we'll We'll turn this place into our own.
And then what? We'll find out then.
Promise me that Dad will come back? Yes.
I promise.
Why aren't you eating your food? I don't like it.
You have to eat it anyway.
You're not my mom.
Oh, come on.
I'm not dancing.
See, there's cake.
11 YEARS OLD Promise me that Dad will come back.
I promise.
This is stupid.
- What is? - That you're shaving me.
Wanna try? No.
I don't have a beard.
No, but you have fuzz.
Don't they say you get a beard once you've shaved the fuzz? Why did you lie? About what? About when we're leaving here.
I didn't lie.
We're still waiting.
It's been five years.
- Yes, but Dad - Dad's not coming.
He's probably dead.
Mom's dead.
- And we'll die, too.
- No.
You pretend everything's okay, but we're running out of food.
We're waiting for him to return.
He said he'd come back.
He said I want to get out of here.
Rasmus is right.
We're running out of food.
We can't stay here a ny longer.
I'm going outside now.
I have to see what's out there before I take Rasmus with me.
I promise to take care of him.
If there's nothing out there, we'll head for the next bunker.

- What? - We leave tomorrow.
What do you mean? Listen - There's nothing out there.
- What are you talking about? Dad told me to look after you and to protect you, but I can't protect you against it because there's nothing.
You went outside? It sucks.
There's nothing out there for us.
There's no one out there.
Everyone's gone.
I'm sorry, but all we can do is head for the next bunker.
And then we'll be locked up down there, but that's all I can do.
Sweetie, I can't do anything.
I can't I can't do it alone.
Look you're not alone.
I'm here, too.
Okay? You don't have to look after me anymore.
We look after each other now.
