Violence erupts in a small town when a drunken truck driver, Lars, runs over a local woman and pins the blame on the town's Bosnian refugee. When Lars' brother Johannes stands up for the man and gives him shelter, Lars and his friends head for Johannes' secluded house, armed with a shotgun and boundless rage… With a critical nod to American cinematography and religious myths, director Ole Bornedal depicts a European version of xenophobia in a disquieting social thriller reminiscent of New Hollywood. Best known for his chilling international hit Nightwatch, Bornedal is at his genre filmmaking best in this harrowing allegory on hatred in an archetypal small Danish town.
