It’s wartime. The city of Östersund emptied. It’d been snowing for a year. A layer a meter thick covered everything. Streets were unusable, doors to buildings buried, deserted cars cocooned. Everything suffocated in heavy white batting. Those who were left were fighters who grouped and contained themselves in hidden bunkers and secret rooms in abandoned buildings. All factions were at war with each other. Abduction was the weapon. They’d capture members from other factions out in the snow and bring them back to their holes and inflict programs of torture on them.
