93 min.DK/Feature

Young Victor throws wild parties spiked with provocative practical jokes and brimming with drugs. Surrounded by a pack of admirers he ensures that the thrills and spills never cease whenever he is around. Jesper, entirely different, is house-sitting nearby, and is fascinated. He falls for Victor's girlfriend, Line. The consequences of this trio become critical. How far is Victor prepared to go not to lose Line? The drama culminates in a violent underwater show-down. Lars Mikkelsen as Victor shatters the idyll and causes normality to capsize in this psychological thriller made for, by, and about young adults.
