Film Website



A film like a warm embrace: a family drama that addresses existentialist topics with a care rarely found in Danish cinema. Line and her brothers live in South Jutland. This rural region has everything they could wish for: intact relationships, steady jobs and a family they can count on. Their parents Maren and Egon also live the hygge life in the South of Denmark – with all the red and white tradition that implies. But when a sudden death strikes the close-knit family, these solid foundations start to give. Only very gradually do the three siblings find their way back to the new, old life.

FRELLE PETERSEN (*1980 in Denmark) began his career in the Danish film industry as an assistant director. His award-winning second film Uncle gave him his international breakthrough in 2019.
