He quickly learns that the town bully, Jørgen, beats his wife, an outsider like Robert. He tries to get her to swear out a complaint against Jørgen; she flirts with Robert. When someone dies and Robert knows the prime suspect is innocent, he halts vigilante justice and things get complicated. He wants to protect himself and the daughter of Jørgen, and he wants to reconnect with his own daughter back home. Is rural justice his ticket back to Copenhagen? Is there any chance at happiness?

Things Are Seldom What They Seem: The Proof Is In The Watching
Things are seldom what they seem; when a cop has some problems on a city beat, he is put into what might seem to be a less stressful environment, a little place in the middle of nowhere with little more than some largely barren land and a little town where the big event seems to be a young girl in red who wheels her baby carriage around after hours; a local wife appears to have beaten by her husband, and seeks solace from the new cop; the locals watch warily to see what happens. And the viewer is sucked into a dark swamp of a plot which offers a few out-of-your-seat surprises and plenty of plot twists. Terribly Happy is a dark, unconventional thriller peopled with folks who have some very odd agendas, and I had a riveting good time with it
