A young filmmaker struggles to defend a film about her own life. Director Liene Linde plays a director who struggles for the right to shoot a film, screen it before an audience, and not back down even one inch concerning what she wants to express. Employing humor and understanding, she comments on the lives of contemporary young women, but also on the challenges of making a movie.
A young director, who sits in front of a commission defending a film based on her own experiences with sex and relationships, is continually confronted with questions about why she’s making the movie. The answer doesn’t come easy… Linde took on a difficult task for her short film. Not only does she capture contemporary young women with humor and the unvarnished truth, but she also defends her right to creative freedom. She herself took on the role of the director struggling against the challenges posed by a film shoot, thereby presenting an original form that helps us understand how difficult it can be to create without compromise.
