A “poignant tale about Millennials” that follows a 27-year-old woman called Karmen. She discovers that her recently buried father was actually wallowing in debt and her whole life has been one big lie. When Karmen’s life free of responsibility starts to collapse, she takes out her feelings on her brother Viktor by disfiguring his face. At the center of the film is a hedonistic lifestyle and the nihilistic search for love and intimacy.
