A simple blown fuse proves the catalyst for chaos in this drama about a young dancer who befriends a mysterious electrician. Annika (Trine Dyrholm)'s parents own a dance studio, so when the lights go out they phone an electrician to restore power. In no time, soft-spoken circuit man Lasse (Anders W. Berthelsen) is knocking on the door, toolbox in hand and ready to go to work. It's obvious from the onset that Annika is attracted to Lasse, though the latter is quick to explain that his reluctance to get close to her stems from the fact that he was recently released from prison after serving time for tax fraud. Surprised to see such a sympathetic reaction from Annika, Lasse gradually opens up to the girl. Before long, the two have made plans to go out to the movies together. The tenuous bond between them is quickly tested however when Lasse arrives to pick Annika up, and an anonymous telephone call reveals that the electrician may not have been entirely forthcoming about the true nature of his past crimes.
