Anders (Anders Danielsen Lie) will soon complete his drug rehabilitation in the countryside. As part of the program, he is allowed to go into the city for a job interview. Taking advantage of the leave, he stays in the city, drifting around, meeting people he hasn’t seen in a long time. At the age of thirty-four, Anders is smart, handsome, and from a good family, but deeply haunted by all the opportunities he has wasted and the people he has let down. For the remainder of the day and long into the night, the ghosts of past mistakes will wrestle with the chance of love, the possibility of a new life, and the hope of a different future by the time morning arrives.
