As things escalate between Björn and Jamal, Casper finds himself and his family dead center of a conflict that threatens to destroy them.

“Michael Noer is fascinated by the Danish underworld. After the prison drama “R”, he has now made another rugged, adrenaline-fuelled crime drama in which disputes are settled by violence. Noer, who wrote the screenplay himself, sets up a tense plot emphasizing the grim psychology of criminals. His background as a documentary maker shows in the style, reminiscent of social-realism, with the camera constantly moving and the characters in merciless close-ups.” – Rotterdam FF
