The story of Malte, a young teacher, and his wife Liv, who gets raped by a young stranger at a tragic assault during their summer holidays. The couple shows an astonishing strength, dealing with this traumatic event as rational as possible. It takes a while to rebuild the trust in their relationship and their sexuality – things are slowly getting back to normal for the couple. Two years later, Malte meets the perpetrator again by accident. Malte cannot believe his own eyes, and follows him around the city to gather information about him. But before he can address Liv or the police, it comes to a confrontation between the two men. Malte gets sucked into his longing for justice and revenge. And it looks like the real challenge for the most beautiful couple is still to come…
