Two young men, J and Jo, just had a one night stand. The following day they go for a hike in the mountains. J is brimming with unresolved self hatred. Jo desperately wants to be loved. Their trip soon becomes a psychological battle of wills that can only find release in an act of violence.

'Demning' ('Dam') is a journey of two queer hikers being alone together, with "lyrical echoes straight out of a Terrence film," as one reviewer noted. The Nordic film journal Rushprint proclaimed: "one of the most distinctive and exciting voices of the new independent Norwegian film." (R.D.)
