Danny, of Danish origins, an ex-inmate in Belgium, is housebound in a small hotel with an electronic ankle bracelet as a condition for his parole. Laurence, the hotel’s owner, is more than willing to host former prisoners until they get back on their feet – she’s married to a convicted felon who is doing time and she knows how difficult it can be to re-enter society. She’s having a tough time raising on her own her daughter Clara, a diabolically beautiful teenager who is trying to get a bit too personal with Danny. He quickly understands that the kid is desperately looking for a father figure…but he has to help himself before he can help others. He starts working as a dishwasher in a shabby Chinese restaurant – a lousy job that quickly becomes his way out: he treats the old industrial dishwashing machine with the respect a musician grants their instrument. This hope for redemption is however soon shattered when Clara is assaulted, forcing Danny to face his old demons again.
