Following a tough divorce, 40-year-old Lucas has a new girlfriend, a new job and is in the process of re-establishing his relationship with his teenage son, Marcus. But things go awry. Not a lot. Just a passing remark. A random lie. And as the snow falls and the Christmas lights are lit, the lie spreads like an invisible virus. The shock and mistrust gets out of hand, and the small community suddenly finds itself in a collective state of hysteria, while Lucas fights a lonely fight for his life and dignity.

Synopsis from Trust Nordisk, press information and stills are also available

The film scored an excellent 81.4% in the audience reaction scores at the ICO Screening Days and has been called a return to form for Festen director Thomas Vinterberg with The Guardian‘s Peter Bradshaw saying “it is forthright, powerful, composed and directed with clarity and overwhelming force, yet capable of great subtlety and nuance.”

The Telegraph‘s Robbie Collins said “It is rare that a film can make you laugh, cry and shake with fury all at the same time; even rarer when it does so for the right reasons.”
