Jesper Vidkjær Rasmussen, Denmark, 2015

28 min.DK/Short fiction

35-year-old Lars is a leading (outlaw) biker who, after several years in prison, has become a Christian.
He has not become missionary or sacred, but his view of life has changed, and his newfound
faith is something he hides from the inmates. It's a secret that only he and the prison guard,
Eline, knows of. When Lars gets released, after eight years, he is determined to leave his biker
club. But his decision implies serious consequences, not only for Lars, but also for his wife and
son. Lars' old biker-friend, Lennart, is the boss in the biker club in the absence of Lars, and
Lennart won't let go of Lars. Eventually Lars has to risk his own life, to save his family.
