"You Are the Roots that Sleep Beneath My Feet, and Hold the Earth in Place.” (Eli Léven) A love story that falls outside of heteronormative frameworks, against the backdrop of Stockholm's fringe. Sebastian and Andreas form a union that rebels against the world of institutionalised Ikea furniture, yet within Sebastian, a superwoman begins to come out who Andreas both loves and fears. Director Ester Bergsmark will be present for post-film Q&A.
