It’s the last weekend of summer and a circle of old friends have gathered to celebrate Carl’s birthday in his family’s summer house on the west coast of Sweden. Carl’s beautiful cousin Stina has just moved back from London to resettle in Sweden, and brings devoted British boyfriend Nick along for the festivities. Their relationship is already fraying due to the transition, and is exacerbated over the weekend by Nick’s inability to fit in or grasp the language and rituals of the group.
As the weekend becomes ever more bawdy, Stina finds herself annoyed by Nick’s cloying vulnerability, and fascinated by her cocky, charismatic cousin. When Stina’s flirtations with Carl provoke Nick, the boozy party escalates into a blur of taboo-laden conflict and an explosive investigation of love and commitment.

December 1942. Two young soldiers leave their post at check-point 83 in Northern Värmland, Sweden, and make their way through the ice cold winter-night towards the border of Nazi-occupied Norway. Sweden stands on the brink of invasion and the soldiers want to see the enemy everybody’s talking about. But the adventure ends in disaster and the following day Lieutenant Aron Stenström finds out that his brother Sven is one of the missing soldiers. With the odds against him, he is forced to go on a secret rescue mission behind enemy lines. Deep in the Norwegian forest Aron realizes that a completely different kind of line must be crossed if they’re to come out alive.
