Sinopsis

Hans, a self-confident man, on his way – together with his family – to his parents on the other side of the country – causes a traffic fight with another driver, who, in revenge, starts to follow the family and confronts Hans with his ego. As Hans starts to lose control of his family, Ed pushes him until nothing but the fearful, vulnerable child he once was, remains.
