Summary
  • The lives of two Danish families will become entwined when their sons develop an extraordinary but risky friendship. Unfortunately, loneliness, frailty, and sorrow lie in wait
  • "[The film] follows two Danish families and the unusual and dangerous friendship that develops between them. Bullied at school, Elias is defended by Christian, a boy greatly troubled over his mother's death. So when the two become involved in an act of revenge with potentially tragic consequences, it's their parents who are left to help them come to terms with the complexity of human emotions, pain and empathy"--Container
