Roger Brown (Aksel Hennie) makes his living as a corporate recruiter, finding talented people who work for other companies and making them lucrative offers to join the firm currently signing his paychecks. Roger’s work brings with it a handsome salary, but he suffers crushing insecurity when it comes to his beautiful wife Diana (Synnove Macody Lund), and he constantly showers her with expensive gifts in hopes of staying on her good side. Between Diana’s expectations and the equally expensive tastes of Roger’s mistress Lotte (Julie R. Olgaard), Roger needs cash, so he’s taken on a high-paying second job — stealing rare works of art. Roger is just good enough and smart enough to know that he’ll get caught eventually, and when he learns of a man with an authentic Rubens, he hopes to make one last score that will keep him well-set for a long time. But Roger soon finds out there’s a catch — the man with the painting is also someone he’s supposed to recruit for a client, and he’s clearly a few steps ahead of Roger.
