Now an adult, Kathrine decides to return to her childhood home. She quickly discovers the little human cracks in the massive wall of alcohol which her father has built around him. With small and cautious steps Kathrine and her dad start to find a way to hang out together.

The signs of human existence that Kathrine discovered in the beginning, starts shining through more and more and creating a tiny glimpse of hope for the better. And one day the most unexpected turn of events changes everything; Palle quits drinking.

What started out as a film of a man drinking himself to death suddenly turns into a story of a man who – with the help of his daughter’s patience and love – manages to take control of his own life and change his conditions.
