Nicoline, an experienced psychologist, starts a new job at a penal institution. She meets Idris, a sex offender who committed a series of grave crimes. After five years of treatment, he is about to go on his first unaccompanied probation. His team of practitioners is enthusiastic about his development but newcomer Nicoline does not trust him and tries to push his probation.

A power play emerges between the two and Nicoline, in spite of her knowledge and experience, lets herself be trapped completely.
