Duration
90’
Director
Lina Maria Mannheimer

For a year, Naomi and Edvin film themselves; the result is an intimate and raw portrait of their lives. They meet, fall in love and break up. However they don’t give up on each other, and a unique friendship emerges. Their filming allows us behind the façade of social media - or any other kind. We get to witness the uncensored thoughts of two 20-year-olds about life’s challenges and relationships.
