Julius is an eloquent young museum attendant loved by his friends, colleagues and his girlfriend. One day he invites his fellow workers to join him for a sailing trip on his aristocratic family’s boat. But something goes wrong. Julius is not who he seems to be. Jöns Jönsson's second feature is a clever, increasingly uneasy tale of an affable young man's compulsion to self-invent that goes much further than the odd exaggeration.
