Once again, Tomo’s mother Hiromi has lost her job. She often comes home drunk – until one day she does not come home at all. The eleven-year-old finds refuge with her uncle Makio and his new girlfriend Rinko, a trans woman. To Tomo, quite a few things are unusual about Rinko, not only her appearance: She takes care of the girl with a previously unknown affection and tries to make her feel at home. Due to her new family Tomo is quickly labelled a freak at school – she who until recently had been ashamed of being seen with her gay friend Kai. Tomo has to reposition herself between exclusion and affiliation – until her mother shows up again. A calm film about the search for acceptance and family unity.

Allergies can make life hell, as the eleven-year-old Gilbert knows. Eggs are the culprit in his case, so to avoid danger he has devised a number of tactics. However, birthday parties such as that of his neighbour Line remain a challenge – especially when you want to impress this girl and become the new goalie of her ice hockey team. And as if that wasn’t difficult enough, Gilbert also has to battle his incredibly strange aunt Doris. She is supposed to look after him while his parents are away, but instead she becomes his worst enemy. A hilariously wacky film with a charming and charismatic protagonist.

When the mother of Erik and Elmer becomes seriously ill, the brothers are sent to a home for boys. Beatings and humiliations are commonplace, carried out by the teachers and the apathetic Headmaster Heck. This abuse also leaves its mark on the interaction between the children. The brothers see only one solution: fleeing. With imagery that is both picturesque and gloomy, Jesper Nielsen examines the dismal conditions of children’s homes in Denmark in the 1960s. A touching film with outstanding performers.
