After serving his sentence, Nikolaj leaves the community home insecure, knowing deep down that the return home is not going to be easy. His father and his pregnant young wife are building a family home, where Nikolaj seems to be in the way. After a crude remark about Nikolaj's late mother, Nikolaj hits his father in the head with a spade and, with no other place to go, runs back to the community home. The tragedy opens up the question of what to do with young offenders once the sentence has been served.
