CGiii Comment

NEON HEART is a story about three people chasing life and each other. Laura returns home to Denmark after a short-lived porn career in the US. Despite the videos of her that remain online, she tries to put the pieces of a normal existence back together. Niklas, Laura's ex, is a recovering addict who finds meaning in his new job taking care of two men with Down's syndrome. As he develops newfound empathy for the pair, he begins to bend the rigid rules of his role leading him down a slippery slope.Frederik, Niklas' teenage brother, is out to gain respect as a hooligan, peer pressured into difficult situations and forced to negotiate the demands of masculine bravado. In glimpses and fragments of past and present, we follow Laura, Niklas and Frederik on a journey full of taboos and desires, in which connections are both made and torn apart.
