A single father and peripheral poet loses his job as a literary critic when he reviews his own book. With no formal education, he ends up at Yarden, a transshipment hub for car imports. He becomes an outcast, a nameless stranger with a five-digit number, who must learn to negotiate the suspicions of his immigrant co-workers and the strict regulations of the Swedish management. At home, the relationship with his teenage son quickly deteriorates as their middle class lifestyle starts to erode. Personal morals are pitted against the demands of fatherhood in an escalating conflict that is ultimately resolved by a lie.
