Sweden, Scotland, 2019, colour, 90 min.
Directors: Ellen Fiske, Ellinor Hallin
Provocative and enthralling film about the frustration of a generation of Scots let down by society’s promises. We see the fading steel town through the eyes of Gemma, a soon-to-be mother on the verge of adulthood. In a place where you “either get knocked up or locked up,” Gemma carves out brief moments of tenderness.
