Anders Baasmo Christiansen,
Eric and Elin meet as adults and reminisce about the summer when they met for the first time. Their parents Linda and Peter were both stuck in heavy drug abuse but for a couple of months they all lived together as a family. The parents struggle with their addiction and the children in their turn struggle not to get sucked into this dirty and violent world. This turbulent time together still defines who they are and what they became: Parents who in spite of addiction try to bond with and find love for their children and those children's struggle to live and to survive. As the new family is torn apart Linda and Peter are forced into making the most horrible of decisions - turning away a child.
A tragic upbringing told trough a really weak storyline. It repeats itself trough the story eventough it's told trough present time. A harsh childhood with abuse and drugs. But the director fails miserably to get any feelings for the stories victims. If this was shown on tv I would have changed the channel.
