Storyline

The wife and son of an unemployed, foul-tempered man suffer under ever-worsening domestic violence. One day while his father is taking a nap, the young son decides to take matters into his own hands. In a panic, the wife and son both believe the man is dead and dump him on a roadside. The man survives, however, and returns home weeks later confined to a wheelchair probably for the rest of his life. How will each member in the family cope with this new situation?

Terrific, scary and touching
30 December 2001 | by (Kalmar, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Oooh, this movie was something else. A father beating his wife and child. It was really realistic and you felt really touched after the movie had ended.

Good actors and many strong scenes makes this movie worth seeing.
