We follow three couples and their fateful ends. There is the young couple played by Aksel Hennie and Kaia Varjord, fresh parents, where the husband is losing control of his life and taking it out on his wife. The beatings, rape and tying up of the wife are some of the most uncomfortable I've seen.
There is the couple played by Mads Ousdal and Pia Tjelta divorced after the wife's adulterous affair where the wife ended up with everything, the house, the kids, and the husband nothing, not even his job. To add insult to injury the wife is not even a very competent parent and seems to have something of a beginning alcohol problem, but her unsympathetic behaviour and goading finally drives her ex over the edge in the worst possible way.
The motivation for the husband in the final couple, played by Bjorn Floberg, to murder his wife and the commit suicide is harder to fathom. I still don't know why.
