Plot Summary:

Married father of two Jonas (Anders Bertelsen) spends his days working as a crime scene photographer to support his family and pay off the mortgage on his humdrum suburban apartment. He loves his wife and children, but secretly dreams of escaping his ordinary middle class existence for the lure of exotic travel and adventure. One day, adventure finds its way to him when his beaten-up car is hit in a harrowing collision with Julia (Rebecka Hemse), a beautiful young woman who has just returned from the Far East. Racked with guilt at his role in the accident, Jonas goes to visit Julia at the hospital, where she lies in a coma. To his surprise, he is warmly welcomed by Julia's wealthy, doting family, who mistake him for Sebastian, the new boyfriend Julia met while traveling in Cambodia. Smitten and unable to tear himself away, Jonas finds himself assuming Sebastian's identity to return to Julia's bedside at the hospital day after day. When Julia finally awakens from the coma, she has lost much of her memory and her eyesight, allowing Jonas to continue his ruse unfettered. As their relationship intensifies, Jonas falls ever more deeply in love with Julia and the exciting future she represents, while slowly drifting away from his children, his wife and the existence he has known -- until one day the truth comes knocking at the door.
