Charter opens with Alice (Ane Dahl Torp) arriving at a small town in Northern Sweden after receiving a troubling call from her young son, and being firmly told to stay away by her ex-husband. She hasn't seen her children in months. Following the messy divorce, she is embroiled in a custody battle in which the entire community seems pitted against her. Distressed, Alice abducts her kids and heads to a holiday resort in the Canary Islands. Kernell expertly plays with mystery and tension, always keeping the audience guessing as to the true motives of the key characters. Dahl Torp excels in a difficult and complex role, conveying both the intense desire for Alice to be with her children, and her reluctance to sacrifice her independence to do so.
