Lars lives a solitary life working as a security guard. One day after finishing his shift, he get a call where he learns that his estranged father has passed away. While mourning the loss of a man he never knew, he learns that his father has left a dog behind.

What ensues is a meditation on a sons bereavement, as Lars tries to come to terms with the dark ghost of a father, moving him from resentment to loss.
