    • Synopsis
    • After a barbecue hosted by his boss, Luc Segers is driving home with his wife Ella and their daughter Anna. Along the way, they decide to stop and buy bread from a vending machine. While getting the loaf, Ella sees Kenny De Groot trying to crack it open, with a crowbar, hoping to find some money. A fight breaks out and punches are exchanged. When a worried Luc decides to go to have a look, he is almost knocked down by Kenny trying to flee the scene. While he tries to stop him, Luc sees his wife’s lifeless body in a pool of blood. At the same time, Luc gets punched in the face and is knocked out.

      When he wakes up from his coma three weeks later, he is told that his wife didn’t make it. He is able to identify the suspect and Kenny De Groot is then arrested. A few weeks later, Luc receives some bad news from his lawyer, Jan De Cock: due to a procedural error, Kenny De Groot has been released by the grand jury. Luc, devastated by grief over the loss of his family, is obsessed with the idea of seeking justice. He neglects his work and starts following Kenny De Groot. He also starts collecting information on the Internet regarding miscarriages of justice and revenge killings.
