Emotionally devastated after accidentally causing the death of an obnoxious drunk, an unscrupulous real estate agent wrestles with the remorse of killing a beloved father and husband as his life begins to unravel to reveal an entire history of regret. Real estate agent Ulrick Nymann (Lars Brygmann) isn't known for his honesty, though his lack of morals have no doubt played a huge part in his success. One night, while celebrating a recent condo sale in a flashy upscale nightclub, Ulrick convinces his friends to duck out in favor of a quiet dive bar. Once there, the contemptuous Ulrick clashes with a loud mouth drunk, with the war of works quickly turning physical. When the drunk suffers a fatal fall, Ulrick is sent to the slammer overnight. Quickly released thanks to the efforts of his lawyer brother (Nicolas Bro) and their powerful but estranged father (Morten Grunwald), Ulrick returns to his materialistic wife Camilla (Anne Sophie Byder) and goes back to work for his unethical boss. The problem is, the death seems to have a greater impact on Ulrick than anyone, including himself, expected. In the following weeks Ulrick attempts to make amends for his transgression by getting closer with the man's grieving family. As a result, however, he drifts ever further away from his own wife and their haughty circle of friends.
