The solicitor Jonas Bechmann (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) is an achiever. But over night he turns into a murderer. Or so he believes when he discovers his one-night-stand dead beside him and flees the hotel room in desperation. A video depicts him committing the crime, but then he sees the girl alive in the street. Jonas is caught in a net of surmise, lies and blackmail, where nothing is as it seems. The trail leads to his father, a solicitor who died under mysterious circumstances two years back.
