When Thomas attends his father's funeral and meets his brother Arne again after a long time, they end up in a situation that will change their lives forever.
When successful banker Thomas attends his father's funeral, he meets his left-wing activist brother Arne again after many years. He makes an effort to get close to Arne and invites him to a prestigious conference on sustainable banking, but Arne uses the conference to make a political statement that has fatal consequences. Thomas finds himself fighting for his own career and for Arne's life, but especially to regain his brother's respect.
