Description: An aimless Oslo twentysomething attempts to reconcile the errors of his past while simultaneously taking control of his future in actor-turned-director Aksel Hennie's semi-autobiographical drama. David is a 25-year old with a broken family and little prospect for the future. Rather than face the stark reality of home life with a terminally ill father, a handicapped brother, and a distant mother, David spends most of his time hanging around an inner-city gym populated by small-time criminals. As David's father lies dying, the gym is raided by police, and David is taken to jail. In a last-ditch effort to make his way home and bid his father farewell, David betrays his friends. Though he does make it home, it's too little too late and David's father has already died, leaving his grieving mother unable to care for his ailing brother. As David comes to the realization that his family is the most important thing in life, his former friends hit back at him with a vengeance.~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
