The director Måns Månsson makes his own version of Kristian Lundberg's acclaimed novel Yarden. A writer realizes that he has fallen deep into debt. To solve the situation, he is forced to take a non-glamorous job as an hourly employee at Yarden in the port of Malmö. Here he becomes a five-digit number and is forced to maneuver between his suspicious colleagues and a supervising employer. Kulturnyheternas Sofia Olsson writes that “The cinematography holds top class in misery and shows a gray and hostile Malmö. Sound and editing are ambitious and emphasize the photography and the vulnerability.” The film has won several Guldbaggar, for example Best male actor and Best Cinematography.
