Two women's lives will intersect while trapped in circumstances unforeseen. Between a struggling Icelandic mother and an asylum seeker from Guinea-Bissau, a delicate bond will form as both strategize to get their lives back on track.
This film was screened at London International Film Festival this morning and it was absolutely hilarious. The audience were in tears with laughter! I don't want to give away the jokes but every ego trip, pretension and cliché that can occur during a film shoot were presented with complete realism. The characters were played totally straight and the comedy is masterful. I wish every success for this film - it should be screened everywhere and awards all round.
