About

It's the summer solstice north of the Arctic Circle. A long-distance truck driver on his last trip experiences a religious awakening; a bedridden mother suffers from MS; a housewares dealer has high blood pressure and other problems; a civil servant must admit that her "elk bridge" was a failure; and a sleigh racer's laughter dies. A forest activist meets her counterpart, a lumberjack; a family of Indian tourists and a trio of drinking philosophers on a park bench act as a choir. Jonas Selberg Augustsén's ensemble film, set amidst the Finnish minority in Sweden, is structured like a puzzle in which the individual pieces form a whole--a panoramic image of human destiny and suffering, with protagonists who strive for redemption even as the nightmare of misfortune weighs upon them. "The forest is dark and silent."
