A school in a small Swedish town has been evacuated. When Kristina arrives at the scene, she must confront a shocking revelation - her son Liam has brought a knife to class with an unknown purpose. Refusing to accept his guilt, Kristina must fight alone to clear her son's name, as well as her own. As accusations fly and tensions escalate, Kristina's desperate search for answers takes a tragic turn. With haunting secrets unravelling, she grapples with the weight of guilt and the unanswerable question of where the true responsibility lies.
