A Second Chance (Danish: En chance til) is a 2014 Danish thriller film directed by Susanne Bier. The film stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Ulrich Thomsen, Maria Bonnevie, Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Lykke May Andersen. It was screened in the Special Presentations section of the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.
Two police officers, Andreas and Simon, live very different lives. Where Andreas enjoys life with his beautiful wife and newborn child, Simon calms his pain from a broken marriage by going to strip clubs and getting drunk. A routine task takes an unexpected turn when they are called out to the home of a junkie-couple where Andreas finds a neglected baby. A family tragedy, the loss of their child, forces the otherwise upstanding Andreas to commit an act that sends him heading for the abyss, and leaves it up to Simon to rectify the situation.

The film raises questions like how far should you go if a child is in distress, and social services are not doing anything, and where is the limit for what you can to get his own desires fulfilled.
