Janne, a former party organizer, travels to Båstad to open an exclusive nightclub and get his life back on track. But just a few days before the club’s premier, Janne causes a catastrophic accident and his increasingly desperate attempts to deal with the situation drag him into a dark downward spiral. Avalon works well as a critique of materialism - the characters are not only obsessed with youth, but also money. None of them lead a meaningful life, as they drift from party to party, their focus on money and youth at the expense of their moral sensibilities highlighted through their expensive clothes and 24-hour party attitude.
