One of the most assured debut films of recent years, Camilla Strøm Henriksen’s heartbreaking coming of age story shows deep sensitivity for all its characters caught in a downward spiral.
Jill – despite her fourteen years – is the de facto parent in her family, caring for her mother in the depths of mental illness and her brother Bo.
Her estranged father’s return proves to be a false dawn, and the two are left more isolated than ever. An intimate story of survival that invests deeply in its characters’ inner life.
"An extremely accomplished and memorable first feature." Sight & Sound
