When Maria (Lisa Carlehed) meets Niels for the first time, he comes across as an angry and unsympathetic young man. His chronic illness has been concentrated into a single wish – to go to a Swiss nursing home for euthanasia. But in order to get there, he needs a volunteer escort. Maria doesn’t sympathise with Niels’s wish, on the contrary, but in him she finds something that she has been missing from her life. Samanou A. Sahlstrøm’s directorial debut is a gripping drama, featuring excquisite cinematography by Brian Curt Petersen and an utterly brilliant Lisa Carlehed in the lead role. Her ability to project inner emotions is astounding and sure to leave no one unaffected.
