Eric and Elin meet as adults at a funeral and relive the dark, magical summer when they met for the first time. They were just kids then, and their parents, Linda and Peter, were both drug addicts. For a few crazy, violent and beautiful months they all lived together as a family. Peter and Linda tried desperately, in spite of their brutal addiction, to bond with and find love for Eric and Elin. But as they slipped deeper into misery, the children struggled to survive. As they find their way back to each other as adults, they must face their past in search of a better future.
