The plot revolves around 16-year-old Erik (Isac Calmroth) who is used to violence, both at home and in school. When he is expelled from his school in Stockholm due to his violent behavior, he is transferred to the boarding school Stjernsberg. This is Erik's last chance to continue his schooling and break with his previous life. But at Stjernsberg, the violence is worse than at home. There, evil is put in a system, disguised as "peer education” of the younger students that is sanctioned by the school. As Erik initiates a forbidden love relationship with the kitchen staff Marja (Thea Sofie Loch Naess) at the boarding school he is challenged in many ways and faces the risk of expulsion. Can he stop generations of violence and choose another path?
