At an Oslo suburb school playground, an argument occurs between thirteen-year-old Lykke, the daughter of a prominent Labour Party member, and her friend Jamie, the son of a high profile right-wing politician. Under unclear circumstances, Jamie is hurt, rushed to hospital, and soon dies. The difficult situation is further complicated by contradicting versions of what actually happened. Was it just innocent child play gone wrong or something much more serious? The adults will have to face their own conflicting attitudes and emotions to find their way out of this moral labyrinth. The film premiered at Venice Days of the Venice Film Festival.
