This is a taped confession from your near past. A warning not to repeat our mistakes but also a plea for forgiveness. Just try to understand our fear and remember – we only wanted what’s best for you.

Family Entertainment

It’s ABBA night on Mallorca, but before things get started, Totte (Kodjo Akolor) warms up the audience with some gospel. Johanna Ställberg puts a twist on woke culture with a charter satire that pinches where it hurts.

Tortoise in Time

A tortoise crawls across the floor as it’s former owner sits on the couch. Very, very dead. Seasons pass, the mail by the door piles up as the man slowly rots away. Our hungry tortoise starts going slightly mad from loneliness.

Catcave Hysteria

A friendship is at stake when love comes in the way. A hurtful conversation is overheard. Two sisters bond brakes when a bloody secret is revealed. The Girls Bathroom – it’s a place full of conflict that forces the truth to the surface. But is at the same time forgiving and accepting.
