It’s Friday night in Rödeby on October 5, 2007. A bunch of girls and boys are hanging out at Rödebyskolan. A moped gang has long harassed a family and their son who live on a farm some distance away. 16-year-old “Oskar” is described as a leader and driving force in bullying. Suddenly a big guy comes up to “Oskar” and hits a beer can in his head and tells him not to be the son in the family.
“Oskar” and five others decide to go up to the yard with their mopeds. When they arrive, it is missing for the father in the family. He shoots at the boys and Simon, who meets up close, dies. “Oskar” is seriously injured. When it becomes known how the boys have harassed the family, many side with the father. But 15-year-old Simon, who died on the farm, had never been involved in harassing the family before. The case divides the whole of Sweden into two camps. Where is the limit for self-defense?
