The film is about a policeman, Robert Hansen, from Copenhagen who makes a mistake, is sent for therapy, and then is assigned to a small town in South Jutland. The interactions are intense between the small town people and the big city policeman now living there. The classic complicated issues of small town life are rephrased many times in the film.

- "IFFBoston Screening Series: Terribly Happy", Independent Film Festival of Boston, March 4, 2010. "Quickly spiraling into an intense fable reminiscent of the Coen Brothers’ BLOOD SIMPLE and NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, director Henrik Ruben Genz displays a unique and sometimes macabre vision of the darkest depths to which people will go to achieve a sense of security and belonging."
