A young woman has disappeared without a trace. Three months later her boyfriend agrees to an unusual arrangement: to be locked in an apartment and interrogated by the woman’s father.
It soon becomes obvious that even long before her disappearance, the two lovers had chosen a strange and unconventional life: cut off from the world, isolated in the middle of the big city.
Skovbjerg made his debut with 'Sticks and Stones', which premiered at London Film Festival in 2018 and won a prize at the Danish Robert Awards. He became a prominent voice among the young generation with his two youth series 'Anton90' and 'Fastland'.
The film is based on the Norwegian novel 'Sander' by Terje Holtet. The screenplay is written by Eskil Vogt, who came to prominence with his collaboration with Joachim Trier.
