63 min.DK/DocumentaryYouth films

Skjold and Isabel are no longer lovers, but they will always be each other’s first love. Over the course of a summer in Copenhagen, we are thrown directly in to the midst of their break-up in a whirlwind of conversations, fights and happy moments. The nostalgia of the Danish summer whips up the plumes of every feeling attached to their love. It is a vulnerable and confusing time for the two, trying to define what they are as a couple and as individuals. Intertwined by loving feelings and a strong friendship, they are having a hard time letting go, in a quest for a definition of their relationship.
