Two young teachers, Malte and Liv, are a happy couple. They are spending their summer holiday on the Mediterranean coast, when they are suddenly assaulted by three young men. Liv gets raped and Malte is forced to watch helplessly. Two years later, Malte and Liv are not only still together, but demonstrating an amazing strength in dealing with the trauma, determined that it will not tear them apart, until Malte has a chance encounter with one of the perpetrators and finds himself driven to seek revenge and sets out in pursuit. But when he is facing the longed-for confrontation, Malte realizes that the situation has gotten out of control once again. He hasn't told Liv, he didn't call the police and now the couple's fragile relationship, which they have fought so hard to preserve, is threatened once more.
