In one of the posh offices of Sweden, a newcomer confidently steps into what appears to be an ordinary job interview.

A film about the family left behind after the death of a small child. In this poetic short film blending live-action with pencil and charcoal animation, the parents of the director tell us about their loss. Is this why the director herself is so afraid when her second child is born? Is grief hereditary?
