Directed by Susanne Bier (‘The Night Manager’) and written by Ander Thomas Jensen (‘All You Need is Love’, ‘In A Better World’),‘A 2nd CHANCE’ parallels two families – one, the happy family of Detective Andreas (Coster-Waldau) and – two, the young junkie-couple whose lives are far from stable. When Andreas and his drunken, divorcee partner Simon (Ulrich Thomsen) are alerted of a domestic disturbance call at the couples’ apartment, they discover their baby son neglected, starving and covered in his own excrement. But when the unthinkable happens and tragedy strikes Andreas’ son with a sudden death, he makes a sudden choice to switch and kidnap the two babies, leading down a dark rabbit hole of moral and ethical disarray. At its gritty core, ‘A 2nd CHANCE’ is a high-concept Nordic noir that exemplifies the various areas of gray within the adult moral complex and their imminent implications. Bier’s baby-snatching drama forces viewers to confront their personal notions about right and wrong, leaving the unsettling question: Who are we to think we are better than anyone else?
