NO 2018. D: Eirik Svensson. A: Sebastian Torngren Wartin. 83 min. Feature. Norwegian OV with Eng. ST. Suitable from age 12. Recommended from age 15

Vilde is 15, has blue hair, loves Japan and hangs out with her friends at Oslo Central Station-even on Christmas Eve. Until bad news reaches her. The Youth Welfare Office urges Vilde to call her father, who is a stranger to her. She leaves him a voicemail and flees through a window. What now? Money for a flight is needed. Tokyo is her place of longing after her own reality, which is marked by loss, sadness and abandonment. The noose tightens more and more. (AB)
