Bus driver Ben caused an accident in Spain, killing five of his passengers. Ever since, the quiet man has been burdened by a crippling sense of guilt. He meets a young repeat offender at community service, but even that unexpected friendship can’t cheer him up. Seeking salvation from his demons, Ben sets off for Sweden.
