Set against the backdrop of the 1976
election, the story is centred around
delinquent teenager Iris (Sofia Karemyr), who
is sent to live in a juvenile home. She meets
Sonja (Josefin Asplund) there and the two
regularly slip away for adventures in the city.
Together they are recruited to the prostitution
ring operated by Dagmar Glans (Pernilla
August), a madam well-known to the authorities.
Dagmar's clients are mostly rich and powerful
men, including senior politicians of the day.
She becomes the subject of a police
investigation lead by a young vice officer,
John Sandberg (Simon J. Berger). Sandberg soon
discovers Glans has powerful clients but also
finds his investigation hampered by his
superiors and his life threatened by sinister
figures. Police break up the prostitution ring
but the powerful clients avoid being named in
the scandal and Dagmar's trial concludes with
her receiving a suspended sentence before Iris
can testify about being an underage prostitute.
In the aftermath of the trial, Sandberg is
killed in a hit and run incident and his report
into the affair is classified by the newly
elected government. The film ends with Iris
running away from the juvenile home, her
ultimate fate ambiguous.
