A heartbreaking, superbly acted coming-of-age drama set in Oslo.
From a young age, Jill has acted as the adult in her family. She cares for her volatile and mentally unstable mother Astrid, as well as for her younger brother Bo. Things seem to look up when Astrid lands a job interview, and the news that their estranged father will be visiting on Jill’s 14th birthday gives the children much-needed hope. But when the family is stricken by a tragedy, Jill, in shock, decides to hide the truth.
