Lucus is forced to start over after his marital breakup. Just as things are starting to turn around, his life is torn apart when an untruthful remark made by a child spreads throughout his small community into a collective state of hysteria. An unnerving yet engrossing psychological drama which highlights the best and worst of human character traits. Mads Mikkelsen (a Royal Affair) won the Best Actor Award at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival for his penetrating portrayal of the wronged school teacher.
