Swedish doctor Anton (Persbrandt) divides his time between his home in a rural Danish town and the African refugee camp where he treats the victims of local war lords. Back at home his 10 year-old son Elias (Rygaard) is being picked on at school, until Christian (Nielsen) steps in to defend him.
It's undeniably thoughtful and impressively crafted by the talented Bier but its pair of parallel storylines don't live up to all that Oscar hype.
