A man's inability to prevent his girlfriend from dying in a vicious attack festers into an all-consuming hunger for revenge that threatens to destroy both his own life and the lives of the ones he cares for most in director Josef Fares' introspective revenge drama. Leo and his girlfriend Amanda were on their way home from his thirtieth birthday party when they were violently attacked by two strangers. While Leo managed to escape relatively free from harm, Amanda was shot during the course of the altercation and died in the hospital shortly thereafter.

A Swedish film by Josef Fares (Jalla Jalla, Zozo, Kopps) about violence, revenge and its effects on the people you care about.
Leo is celebrating his birthday with friends and family. On his way home with his girlfriend, they get brutally assaulted by local gangsters.
"Leo" is a tragic story about a situation that can happen to anyone of us. The story brings nothing new to the genre but works well if you want to study the darker side of men.
