When Rasmus meets Marie, he is certain she is the love of his life. However, it doesn’t take long before it turns out she is a possessive and manipulative being, that cunningly dissects Rasmus to pieces. This is the story of the woman’s destructive insistence on dominance in a relationship seen through the male gaze.  The film is partly inspired by the director’s own experiences and partly by the stories from other male peers. It's a film about everyday terrorism that women commit to men. He says: “It's not because I hate women, it's only because I've spent the last 24 years of my life finding out how to survive in a relationship with them.”
