Juha Lindström grows up in the 1970s in a peaceful suburb to Stockholm called Sävbyholm. Sävbyholm seems peaceful enough on the surface but underneath a lot of problems exist. The grown-up Juha is a famous comedian who cannot forget his childhood. He remembers being a kid and trying to please the cool kids by being funny. He didn't always succeed. Now he is taping letters to his childhood friend Thomas about how bad he feels and how much his childhood has affected him. We follow Juha and the other kids in 6th grade in flashbacks.

The greatest mini-series of them all

This is the most tragic moving picture made as series ever, when it comes to why kids always nag about growing up. Even though the writer of this mini-series is a comedian it's so tragic you could burst into tears.

Jonas Gardell takes us to a suburban part of Sweden, somewhere in the 70'es. We follow Juha as a witness through harassment in the middle-grade, with the outsider, strange Thomas with his German mother and the next-door girl Jenny who's in love with him, and the tough boys in the class who checks out the girls in the locker-room. Well, Juha is stuck between all these scenarios and characters.

There is just one thing to do. Joke about it.

The "film" tells you all about how it sounds in a teenagers ears when adults say stuff like: "You'll just be glad as long as you're a kid".

Also how memories or traumatic events can scar you for the rest of your life even if you're a kid.

If you have an opportunity to see this, don't miss it.
