The friendship between two very different men is explored in this psychological drama about John and René (Michael Ehlert Falch), the latter being a tormented loner haunted by the certainty that his wealthy father is responsible for the death of his mother. René has turned to drink and anti-social behavior to assuage his demons. John (Peter Hesse Overgaard) is one of the main operators of a local power plant who likes to listen to classical music and takes care of wounded or sick birds when he is not working. Just as the two men are learning to appreciate the good (and different) qualities in each other, a woman appears on the scene and John is drawn to her -- but not enough to end his relationship with René and avoid the inevitable disaster that seems to lie ahead if his friend does not change his ways.
