This drama tells the story of Britt and Claes, a couple in their mid-thirties who have lost their only child in a car accident. They struggle in separate ways; Britt cannot talk about it, Claes can hardly talk about anything else. Britt buries herself in her job as a social worker and gets involved with a young single mother and her baby, far exceeding the bounds of professional interest. Claes is unable to function at work and is sent home on leave. He does not tell Britt, but starts spending his days stalking the woman who ran their daughter over.
