Synopsis / Plot
In a nation at war in Africa, Anton, a Danish doctor, is working on a humanitarian mission in a refugee camp. His wife is left alone for long periods in Denmark with their son Elia, who is bullied by his classmates. Then a new classmate arrives, Christian, a boy who, after the death of his mother, has grown up alone with his father. This boy transforms all his pain into violence and Elia is immediately drawn by his strong personality. The friendship between the two boys becomes a dangerous game of revenge and rage that will call Anton’s ideals into doubt and shake the lives of both families.
