One day, young Tore - a member of the “Jesus Freaks” Christian punk movement - meets Benno by the side of the road. Before long, Tore moves into a tent in Benno’s garden, gradually becoming part of his family. But Benno can’t resist playing cruel games designed to test Tore’s faith. As the violence becomes more and more extreme, Tore’s capacity for love is pushed to its limits in this disturbing, nihilistic drama. Warning: This film contains extreme violence and animal cruelty.
