Torkel is an average teenager whose life takes a turn for the worse when a girl who had a crush on him kills herself and an unknown maniac starts stalking him.
In this unhinged Danish animation, 6th-grader Terkel (Anders Matthesen) begins experiencing a streak of bad luck after sitting on a black spider. His teacher dies and is replaced by the strange Justin (also Matthesen). At home, Terkel's Uncle Stewart (also Matthesen) erupts in sporadic fits of rage, and at school, Terkel is bullied by two boys after they learn that fat Doris likes him. On a school camping trip, Terkel begins receiving death threats and must figure out who wants to kill him.
