Lars (9) is naÃ¯ve and innocent, all he wants is for his father to be happy and his family to be together. Larsâ€™ mother is gone and life has been empty and dysfunctional without her. On the eve of his birthday, Larsâ€™ dad, Peter, gets himself drunk and after an embarrassing argument with the next-door neighbour, Alma, masturbates in the backyard. Lars sees everything.
