The protagonist Tristan (Pääru Oja) is a single father in his thirties who spent the past few years in prison for causing a house fire which seriously injured his little daughter (Elo-Mirt Oja). On the day of his release and return home he aims to meet his 8-year-old daughter whom he hasn't seen since the accident and ask for her forgiveness. Having arrived in his hometown, Tristan is overcome by fear and guilt as he realises he cannot face the consequences of his wrongdoing. His plan to turn a new page backfires and suddenly he comes to realise that his every move can only worsen things.
