Swedish Candy, Some Violence and a Bit of Cat

Ester Martin Bergsmark, already known at TGLFF for Pojkanten and Nånting måste gå sönder, continues to make films aimed at the deconstruction of film genres and gender stereotypes, this time with a cruel yet liberating short. Two women's stories intertwine, caught between compliance with conventions and the desire for transgression. Maintaining the balance, however, is always complicated.
