In this dark feminist fable, a life is suspended between the present and the future. Eldest daughter Lise spends an idyllic summer frolicking barefoot on her family's farm. She's about to attend boarding school, the dream of an independent future in reach. But when her mother experiences a life-threatening childbirth, Lise is forced to confront the claustrophobia of 19th century gender roles. With elemental cinematography and a breakout performance from newcomer Flora Ofelia Hofmann Lindahl, AS IN HEAVEN pays tribute to the labour and resilience of women.
