Simon arrives in Lund full of anticipation and ready for his life to really begin; but is quickly disappointed by law school. During a violent protest march he meets the anarchistic young woman Max and falls in love. She dazzles him with a world of excess, lies and huge risks – and when he realizes the damage that’s done, it’s already too late to escape. “An Honest Life” is a thriller about betrayal, class and the appeal of living outside the law.
