About the Film:
The film revolves around siblings Johanne and Simon who are enjoying their youth in Copenhagen with shared parties, shared friends and a shared apartment. Everything changes one night when Simon brings a girl home, believing that Johanne will sleep over at a friend’s house, and then ends up raping her with Johanne as a witness on the other side of the wall. This sends Johanne into the biggest dilemma of her life in which she must choose between helping and ‘saving’ one of the people she loves the most or standing up for the girl whose rape she unwillingly became the key witness of.
