CGiii Comment

It's dark...veers perilously close to being disturbing...

But...the underlying sadness is heartbreaking.

The(ir) Blurb...

Stockholm, 1981: Ivar convinces his partner Pål to go to a sauna, in the city, to have fun together, live new experiences, meet new people. While Pål is awkward and hesitant, Ivar sees this place as the trigger that will allow him to realise his most secret desires. But this illusory paradise can have limits, turning into a nightmare, and exposing insecurities and old hurts that they believed were safely hidden.
