Single mother Elin is off with her two kids on a fishing trip when the worst happens: while playing with his sister out of his mother's sight, Ulrik (6) falls into the river and is lost in the heavy streams. Elin is left with her daughter Storm (10), struggling to get their life back on track when a classmate claims to have seen Storm deliberately push her brother into the river. The accusations quickly spread in the small community. Elin fiercely defends her daughter, but as her own narrative waivers she is forced to face the truth about what really happened that day by the river.
