Janus, twenty-three and fresh out of prison for drug dealing, and Jakob, seventeen and newly escaped from reform school, are brothers who attempt to make their way through the garish netherworld of drugs, violence, sleazy nightclubs, and even sleazier crashpads. Janus owes Lasse 80,000 and must pay the debt while also attempting to find a place to stay. However, as Janus and Eva become involved, Jakob is pushed out and has to take a job from Lasse in order to stand alone.
