The story of ‘Utburd’ is based on ancient Scandinavian folklore about the phantasmal incarnations, which can be persuasive or violent, of young children set out in the woods to die. There is this old myth Adrian will portray in his second novel, but he has writer’s bock. He is the childhood friend Kristine and three other friends at a cabin to get away from writing. But out there in the woods he says the legend, and soon is not so sure anymore: the "apparitions" really just an old ghost story?
