"Horribly, shamefully, hilariously relatable." - Angie Han, Hollywood Reporter

"A whip-smart black comedy out of Norway that shines a damning light on society's self-obsession." - Bianca O'Neill, Time Out

In this pitch black satirical comedy, director Kristoffer Borgli portrays a toxic relationship that rapidly escalates to frightening new levels of narcissistic one-upmanship. Signe and Thomas are a young couple with an unhealthily competitive streak which takes a vicious turn when Thomas suddenly breaks through as a contemporary artist. In response, Signe makes a desperate and shockingly self destructive attempt to regain her status by deliberately making herself ill to attract attention and sympathy. Borgli brilliantly satirises the self promotional tendencies of contemporary media and the attention seeking impulse in all of us.
