When The Dust Settles

When The Dust Settles

It is a busy Friday night at a newly opened restaurant. Guests are eating, drinking and enjoying a carefree night out when two masked men with weapons enter the premises. Shots are fired. And just like that, life will never be the same.

Nine days earlier, Nikolaj is about to take over the restaurant where he works as a chef. Jamal is trying to pass his driving test and live up to family expectations. Lisa, a famous Swedish singer, is about to start a new life with her Danish lover. And Holger, a lonely old man, is trying to end his. Elisabeth, the Danish attorney general, cannot decide if she should retire to spend more time with her wife, or stay in the political game where she feels the most alive. Meanwhile Marie, an anxious 8-year-old girl, finds a shiny, golden bullet in the forest, and Ginger, a homeless girl, does not yet know that she will become an important eye witness.

Over the course of three weeks the lives of these eight main characters will change dramatically, and they will find themselves questioning the way they live and the choices they have made.
