In Northern Sweden, a small community built around a mine. From the winter cold to summer greenery, some teenagers, about to take the leap in the adultage, fight with themselves and the world around them, learning to live, love and dream – while the city also is in a time of change, forced to move due to the explosions mining the ground.
The story of a lone father's
relationship with his daughter, of the destructive power of alcohol, of a
child's vulnerability, but also of love, betrayal and socialist
politics in 1970s Sweden. A unique and moving story freely based on Åsa
Linderborg's best-selling novel.
