When John returns home to his father after serving time in prison, he’s looking forward to starting his life afresh. However in the local community, his crime is neither forgotten nor forgiven. His presence brings out the worst in everyone around him and a lynch-mob atmosphere slowly takes shape. Feeling abandoned by his former friends and the people he loves, John loses hope and the same aggressions that previously sent him to prison starts building up again. Unable to leave the past behind, he decides to confront it. Winner of Swedish Guldbagge awards for Best Film, Director, and Supporting Actor. In Swedish with English subtitles.
