CGiii Comment

When the arrival of a chain store with hundreds of job appears on the horizon for a fictitious working-class town in Sweden, Aida and Dana become documentarians and capture the heart and diversity of the community to lobby for the store. This humorous, must-see film reflects on the beauty of immigrant families, the impact of globalization, and the agency of filmmaking. Gabriela Pichler's direction draws out the courage and power of youth with charming, vulnerable performances from Zahraa Aldoujaili and Yara Aliadotter.
