TV allows the fictional characters to truly unfold, grand themes of society to be explored and life is dramatized in all its nuances of grey. It is a drug with substance.

When investigator Bjørn visits a forensic officer to identify a young woman, he is horrified to find that it is his own daughter lying on the autopsy table.
The forensic officer regards it as a suicide, but Bjørn refuses to believe that his daughter has taken her own life. On a timid trail pointing towards murder, a prodigious, furious and sorrow-stricken Bjørn begins to chart the last day of his daughter’s life.
It sends him on a whirlwind journey through the night, where he encounters people, who each meant something crucial to his daughter, revealing a network of truths, lies and criminal acts woven into her and Bjørn’s own life.
To understand his daughter’s death, Bjørn must confront himself – until he finally faces the unavoidable truth about why she died.
