16-year-old Erik's (Andreas Wilson) life is tainted by violence and conflict. When he is expelled from school, he is sent to the boarding school Stjärnsberg as a last chance to break free from his old life and continue his studies. But Stjärnsberg is hardly a refuge —here evil is systematized in the form of condoned violent oppression of younger students by their seniors. Can Erik revolt against the harassment's without breaking the rules and risking expulsion? Can he maintain dignity without being drawn into the violent spiral that is threatening his entire future? Evil is a story of cruelty and the way through it—but also about genuine friendship and the beginnings of love.
