The pic, now in post-production, features the dramatic aftermath of a tragic incident in a middle-class suburb in Oslo. During a break in school the 13-year-old daughter of a Labour Party member accidentally causes the death of a classmate, the son of a high-profile right-wing politician.
“The school’s headmistress must manage a traumatic and increasingly complex situation, together with her own secrets and conflicted emotions,” Pti said.
The film is Haugerud’s second feature after his debut “I Belong,” which won the award for best picture at the Amandas, Norway’s national film awards, in 2012. It is produced by Motlys, the company behind Joachim Trier’s Cannes 2015 competition title “Louder Than Bombs.” Arthaus will handle Norwegian distribution.
