Elias, a former art history student, works as a janitor at his old university. He leads a very isolated life, spending his spare time filming clumsy art videos and constructing far-fetched mystical theories. Due to administrative changes, his job is suddenly threatened. For the first time in years, Elias contacts his little brother Anders. Anders, a stressed small-time businessman, comes to rescue with his new girlfriend, a cheerful young woman named Linda. They give Elias a hand, trying to make him look decent and prepping him up for a job interview, even though Elias´ rude behavior and contempt towards his brother´s lifestyle make it difficult.
Despite their differences, the brothers slowly find their long-lost connection and even manage to get Elias through his interview. But in the end, the fears and insecurities of both brothers are too strong to overcome. The short time of brotherhood ends with dramatic results.
