Mads Mikkelsen (CASINO ROYALE) stars as Jacob Petersen, who has devoted his life to helping street children in India. When the orphanage he heads is threatened by closure, he receives an offer of a large donation from Jørgen (Rolf Lassgård), a Danish businessman. However Jørgen insists that he not only has to collect it, but he must also take part in the wedding of Jørgen's daughter. The wedding proves to be a critical juncture between past and future and catapults Jacob into the most intense dilemma of his life.
