He gets a digital camera so he can film the beginning of his new life. In fact, the future looks bright. But the more Dag Vidar becomes accustomed to his new life, the more frightened he becomes that someone will reveal what happened before: the reason he had to move to a foster home. He begins to doubt all the good things around him, becoming his own worst enemy in his fear that his past might one day be revealed. In particular, the memories of his brother Dennis haunts him and disturbs his new life.
