LARS (60), The CEO of a small software company on the rise in the city of Lund, fires his young employee, Mikael, for not wanting to go to Beijing to close a business deal, but rather wants to stay with his pregnant wife who´s gone into premature labour.

Reluctantly Lars has to make the journey to China himself. The next morning, on his way to the airport, he steps on the wrong train and finds himself going the opposite way. Immediately he demands to be let off. He gets his will and the train stops at the nearest station. Stångby. No one but Lars gets off and as the train leaves, Lars slowly begins to realize that there will be no more trains stopping i Stångby today.

Lars is 5 minutes from civilization - as he knows it. But his knowledge is about to change.
