On what initially appears to be a routine police raid, partners Andreas and Simon encounter low-life junkie Tristan. Knowing his history of domestic violence, Andreas is understandably unsettled to find Tristan living with another vulnerable woman. Fears worsen when he discovers their young baby locked away in a cupboard, crying and clearly neglected. A recent father himself, Andreas becomes fixated on safeguarding the child. It soon borders on obsession, dangerously blinding him to very real problems within his own family life. “A Second Chance is an intense personal drama about what happens when vulnerable people are forced into circumstances beyond their control; about how we aren’t as immune to chaos as we like to think; and about the secrets harbored by those closest to us.”—Susanne Bier.
