A sadistic family man tests the faith of a young Christian punk rocker after inviting the boy to live in his home in this shocking drama based on a true story. Tore (Julius Feldmeier) is an independent-minded yet pious teen who finds solidarity in the company of the "Jesus Freaks," a group of young Christians who reject institutionalized religion while embracing the teachings of Christ. One day, Tore encounters a man named Benno (Sascha Alexander Gersak), whose car has broken down by the side of the road, and Tore somewhat miraculously manages to get his car running again. Grateful, Benno eventually invites Tore back to his home, and a relationship begins to blossom between the rebellious teen and the outwardly benevolent father. In time, Tore becomes something of an extended family member. Tore's relationship with Benno, his wife, and her two children takes a turn for the worse, however, when Benno's subtle challenges to his humble guest's faith become increasingly aggressive and abusive. Meanwhile, despite righteous Tore's determination to turn the other cheek, it's only a matter of time before Benno pushes him to his breaking point.
