Widowed when his son Erik (Björn Almroth) was just five, Rickard (Thorsten Flinck) has since lived alone witht eh boy, now a teenager .. but this living-arrangement has gone horribly wrong. While Rickard is shooting porn in the living room with his best friend Geko (Goran Marjanovic) and a succession of girls - at the moment it's newcomer Tess (Sanna Brading) as performers, Erik has retreated more and more into his own room hiding from the sunlight behind blinds and blocking sounds of the real world out with his earphones, playing him a neverending stream of experimental music. He even spurns the advances of lovely young Tess, who tries to be his friend (and maybe more).

Meanwhile, the goings-on in the living room take more and more turns towards the vicious - at one point, Erik and Geko start scaring the shit out of Tess, and she even leaves and contemplates suicide after that, bzut instead comes back, at another point they get so drunk that the situation culminates in a food fight that gets nasty once Geko starts throwing up and stuff. Eventually, Rickard gets so worked up by alcohol that he wants to drive over to his father and beat him up - which is when Erik starts to understand his father: Rickard only got so off the hook because as a kid his father had repeatedly raped him ... and suddenly Erik starts treating his father with respect, tries to comfort him when he has (recurring) nightmares and opens up to the world in general and to Tess in particular ...

 

Unfortunately the film, while not bad, is by far nt as interesting as it could have been: It's just that director Moodysson seems to be way more interested in showing flashy and shocking images in trendy videoclip-style than to explore the real abyss in the story at hand ... and in that respect, the (happy) ending seems to be as clichéd and blunt as cheesy ... and somehow the viewer feels cheated out of the story the film could have told.
