After serving time with an ankle bracelet, Janne, a former party organizer, travels to Båstad to open an exclusive nightclub and get his life back on track. During the star-studded tennis week, he makes his final preparations before the opening, hangs out with his sister Jackie and enjoys life as a soon-to-be-crowned club king. But just a few days before the club’s premier, Janne causes a catastrophic accident and his increasingly desperate attempts to deal with the situation drag him into a dark downward spiral.
