Eddie is suffering from no longer living with Karine and their son Noam. One night walking home drunk, he gets mugged and badly injured. Suddenly, Eddie becomes a hero to his son and the victim of a vicious crime to his wife. He is asked to move back home, and is offered a new job. But when Ahmed, the perfect scapegoat for the attack, is charged, the gravitas of his accusation sucks Eddie into an infernal spiral of self-doubt and lies, marking the start of a dangerous freefall.
