Basia and Marek are a young couple of Polish immigrants in Sweden. One innocent lie triggers a family drama; their daughter is taken away by social services. The couple can’t agree on how to fight with ruthless procedures of a modern state. Feeling powerless and desperate, they decide to act beyond the law.
