A sleepy little town is shaken by a bank robbery. Arved Minks is the first police officer at the crime scene. The bank is quickly surrounded by the police, every exit is blocked. Then Arved finds out that he is not dealing with any old bank robber. It’s his own son Jacob. When Arved realizes that Jacob is not acting on his own but is being used as an instrument in an intricate crime plot, a murderous roller coaster ride begins that confronts him with his repressed past. That night only one question remains: How far is he willing to go to protect what is most precious to him?
