21-year-old director Asger Bartels’ self-financed, feature film-debut tells the story of the complexities of millennial coming-of-age through the eyes and lens of Louis (Karim Theilgaard). Following the death of his estranged father, the photographer Louis is left feeling he hasn’t achieved as much in life as he had hoped for. He is still chasing the same dream of becoming a famous photographer but has been stuck working on the same project for many years. Louis’ girlfriend Rosa (Kimmie Falstrøm) tries to get Louis to snap out of it and grow up, but when old acquaintances make an appearance the night draws Louis back in.
