    Director's Statement

    The story about Sabina and Elin is an attempt at confronting my hometown, Holmsund, and Sweden as a whole. A Sweden where we have created a second-class citizen that is almost always an immigrant. The meeting between Sabina and Elin is something simple and beautiful. An alternative that I hope people want to believe in.
