Two best friends (, ) turbulently reunite after many years, one still a badass drifter up to his old reckless ways, the other now a respectable husband and father who doesn’t want to remember his wilder youth.  Mikkelsen negotiates a drug deal as a favour to his wild friend for old times’ sake, hoping that it will make him go away quickly and his wife will never know about his past, but the deal ends up getting him into trouble that threatens to destroy his entire life. The acting from the very talented and attractive leads is top-notch, and the story is engrossing.
