The Will


Henrik is in deep trouble. His girlfriend has split, drug and alcohol abuse have gotten the upper hand, and he's deeply in debt. When everything is most dire and his woes seem wholly insurmountable, a door to new life is opened when Henrik’s wealthy grandfather dies, leaving behind him a huge fortune. But at the promise of money, family war breaks out, and years of failure and betrayal are revealed.
