Language barriers, cultural gaps and social expectations conspire to ensure that a veiled Muslim woman's plea for protection from her violent husband falls on deaf ears in this cleverly edited interlude in a Danish police station. The woman’s young son, an interpreter and two police officers bring their prejudices to bear on the exchange. All believe they have the best intentions to find a solution, but can they find their way through the cloud of personal biases?
