Anders (late 40s), a single father and peripheral poet, loses his job as a critic when he writes a review of a book that doesn’t exist. With no formal education, he ends up at the Yard, a transshipment hub for car imports. He becomes an outcast, a nameless stranger with a four-­‐digit number, who must face the suspicions of his immigrant co-­‐workers and the strict regulations of the Swedish management. An unexpected friendship with a colleague, Hilal, and his illegal relative, triggers a rift between Anders and his teenage son. Personal morals are pitted against the demands of fatherhood in an escalating conflict that is ultimately resolved by a lie.
