Thirteen years ago, in Viborg, Denmark, lived two young men with the same name: Thomas Andersen. Winner of the 2016 TC/RHDF Best Doc: Foreign Language Award.

One night in October, they met each other at a pizzeria, got into an argument, started fighting, and one Thomas decided to run over the other one in his car. The other Thomas ended up in a coma, but narrowly survived. When he woke up, he could not remember anything about the night that changed his life forever. Now, he returns to Viborg to find out what actually happened that night a long time ago – and to find Thomas Andersen again.
