During the school break, a fight between two class mates ends up in one of them dying. This has a dramatic and tragic effect on parents, students and the school board, all having to search for and find the truth.

During the break at a school in Oslo, the 13 year old Lykke, daughter of a parlementarian, hits her class mate Jamie, son of a populist politician. The hit is that hard that Jamie loses consciousness and later dies. What caused the fight and Lykke to hit Jamie, and why was there no supervision?

This intrusive and masterfully constructed documentary shows how parents, students and the school board not only have to deal with this event in itself, but also with all kinds of accusations, speculations and conflicting emotions.
