Seventeen-year-old Jakob lives with his father and grandfather in a small apartment. In order to support the household, he starts working as a helper at a slaughterhouse. Soon he starts having inexplicable panic attacks that render him incapable of working. Jakob retreats more and more. In a sex-cam chat for gay men, he meets Kristjan, a twenty-six-year-old artist. A fateful encounter and an insistent portrait of today’s society about physicality and individuation.
