On a dark winter evening, driving home with his family, Jan runs over his neighbours' eight-year-old son. The boy survives, but is left in a coma, and a deep rift develops between the two families. As time passes, the immediate sorrow and disbelief of the boy’s father starts to give way to suspicion. A dangerous struggle for truth and justice ensues, leaving both men trapped in a downward spiral of desperation that threatens to lead to their undoing.
