For unclear reasons, a young immigrant taken into police custody has fallen into a coma. Meanwhile, two police officers are on routine patrol in a notorious Copenhagen ghetto area. When the news of the youngster’s death gets out, all hell breaks loose and the two edgy (anti)heroes have to fight tooth and claw for a way out. A sharp-edged adventure of life-and-death urgency that delivers an acute social commentary, without resorting to simpleminded blame games or clean-cut definitions.
No physical screenings scheduled.
