An unexpected phone call from a former lover becomes the starting point for a tale of love, nostalgia and bygone days. After a long time without any contact, the Swedish film director Mia Engberg receives a phone call from her former lover Vincent. After eight years in prison, Vincent needs Mia's help to reconstruct their shared past to find out who he is after so many years behind bars. Their telephone conversation reminds Mia of her rebellious youth in Paris, her affair with the criminal Vincent and their first encounter in the catacombs. The phone call, together with Mia's reflections, creates the framework of the film, complemented by evocative private recordings and photos of Paris and Sweden, where the past and the present merge together.
Mia Engberg is a director and producer based in Stockholm. She has made several short films and documentary films, and is one of the filmmakers behind the production company Story. Her recent project Dirty Diaries, 12 shorts of feminist porn, received widespread attention both in Sweden and abroad.
