Synopsis / Plot
After a barbecue hosted by his boss, Luc Segers is driving home with his wife Ella and their daughter Anna. Along the way, they decide to stop and buy bread from a vending machine. While getting the loaf, Ella sees a man, Kenny de Groot, trying to crack it open with a crowbar, hoping to find some money. A fight breaks out and punches are exchanged. When a worried Luc decides to have a look, he is almost knocked down by Kenny trying to flee the scene. That's when Luc sees his wife lying in a pool of blood. He gets punched in the face and knocked unconscious. When Luc wakes up from his coma three weeks later, he is told that his wife didn't make it. He is able to identify the suspect and Kenny De Groot is quickly arrested. But, a few weeks later, Luc receives some bad news from his lawyer: due to a procedural error, Kenny De Groot has been released by the grand jury. Devastated by grief, Luc becomes obsessed with seeking justice. He neglects his work and starts following Kenny. He also begins collecting information on the Internet regarding miscarriages of justice and revenge killings. But this is going to be about more than revenge; it will be Luc Segers vs. the state.
