This taut Norwegian thriller with a bold and unusual premise starts with two teenagers witnessing a shoot-out and becomes a much darker story about gang warfare, police corruption and violence
When a shocking crime is committed at a remote sand quarry in Norway it's witnessed by two teenage boys who manage to escape, taking important evidence with them. They vow to keep the incident secret.
Local police chief Helen Sikkeland believes that the runaway teenage daughter of a biker gang member has some connection with the murders after an explosion takes place at her father's restaurant
Henning is increasingly haunted by anxiety and insomnia. Philip breaks his silence and reveals everything to his foster mother Helen, who dispatches a team of divers to search for the gun in the lake.
Aware Helen thinks he's lying about the killings, Philip asks to be moved to a new foster home. When Henning rejects him at school, furious he has spilled the beans, a distraught Philip goes missing.
Henning's statement gives Helen the much-needed breakthrough she was seeking in the case. Unaware Philip was also at the sand quarry, Helen fears for Henning's safety and asks for witness protection.
Helen suspects there's a leak in the police department and Henning's accident was an attempt on his life. Philip leaves Helen a message about the killer's identity, putting his life in extreme danger.
