A LONG PROTRACTED SCENE OF AN ACCIDENT

Henrik is ten years old and lives with his family in Umeå in northern Sweden. He gets an honorary task from his dad, “keep track of your mom while I’m away”. Henrik tries. But what did that really mean? One day Henrik finds a letter on the kitchen table, “I don’t wanna live anymore”, in mom’s handwriting.

NOT UNTIL NOW

JOSEFINE

It’s soon time for the summer holidays and 15-year-old Josefine has ended up an outsider in her class. To make the situation in the class better before the last year of school, two hired actors come in to work with drama for a day based on collaboration and status.
