Couple of the Year

Couple of the Year

Couple of the Year depicts an alleged sexual assault. Esben and Katrine sleep together on the first night of fresher's week and the next day, they're disagreeing whether Esben went too far. From here on, the film intensifies and eventually descents into chaos to show how bad things can turn out when all the bystanders start to partake in the conflict and act as judge and jury.
