Synopsis / Plot
Three stories of people whose lives have been thrown into chaos come together in this drama from Swedish filmmaker Anders Nilsson. Nina (Bahar Pars) is a teenage girl whose family has recently settled in Sweden from overseas. Nina and her younger sister Layla (Oldoz Javidi) are suddenly at odds with their parents when Nina is accused of becoming too familiar with the boys at her school by chatting with them. When Nina tries to run away from home, it leads to a confrontation with their extended family. Elsewhere, Carina (Lia Boysen) is a respected broadcast journalist who has been hiding a shameful secret – her husband Hakan (Peter Engman) has a violent streak and often beats her. One day, Carina decides she’s had enough and files assault charges against Hakan. Carina’s sister (Annika Hallin) remains supportive through this difficult time, and to her surprise Hakan’s mother (Bibi Andersson) comes to her aid, but Carina soon finds her colleagues are turning their back on her. And finally, Aram (Reuben Sallmander) runs a nightspot where three angry customers who’ve had a run-in with doorman Peter (Per Graffman) return with guns and open fire on the club. Aram offers to cooperate with police in order to put the gunmen behind bars, but he learns the shooters will go to great lengths to keep Aram quiet. (Mark Deming: All Movie Guide)
