Signe and Thomas are in an unhealthy, competitive relationship that takes a vicious turn when Thomas suddenly breaks through as a contemporary artist. In response, Signe makes a desperate attempt to regain her status by creating a new persona hell-bent on attracting attention and sympathy.

Signe is pushing 30 but lives her life without any ambition. Unlike her creative group of friends, she hasn’t really accomplished anything. She feels particularly boring when her boyfriend Thomas suddenly experiences his breakthrough as an artist, while she is only working in a bakery. One day at work a fatal accident leads Signe to think about a potential project of self-realization. A dog attacks a woman and Signe steps in to help. When walking home full of blood from the injured woman people look at her and sympathize, giving her the attention and care she has longed for. Soon she sets out on a mission to create a whole new persona, living fulltime as a victim.
