Feminist writer Nilo's calm life is disrupted by the arrival of her wayward sister Maya - who then runs off with Nilo's Volvo and 13-year-old daughter. Nilo reluctantly tags along on this impromptu road trip, which takes them from the orderly streets of Stockholm to the misty hills of Portugal. As the two sisters contend with zany mishaps, their emotional baggage and the rebellious whims of teenaged Laura, the film revels in the delight and messiness of their three-way bond. Shot in luminous 35mm with a dreamy synth score, Swedish director Lovisa Sirén establishes herself as a bold new voice.
