Now Jørgen is on his way into adulthood with his girlfriend and their child, while Lars is living the bachelor life of soccer and beer. One day Lars gets a nasty surprise at the swimming pool. He recognizes Hans, a middle-aged man who’s rumored to fool around with the teenage boys of the suburb. Lars sets out on his own to gather evidence and recruits Tim, a boy who has been seeing Hans, to help him bring down the abuser. Soon the situation spins out of control…
