The meticulously structured life of Irina, a hip young Danish author, is rocked when she returns to her rural family after a long absence, to celebrate her brother's wedding.

Irina is carefully building her carreer as a writer in Copenhagen. She has just published a succesful debut novel on her childhood in the Danish countryside, which was very much marked by bullying at school - in particular by her classmate Cathrine. When she arrives at her parents' house, she finds out that her brother is about to marry exactly thát girl. And to make it even worse, Cathrine seems to have nestled herself comfortably into the spot Irina once decisively fled. It doesn’t take long for conflict to arise, fed by the seemingly insurmountable differences and a painful history.

Director Lisa Jespersen used facets from her own life for this drama-comedy. She too wrestled with the divide between her artistic urban life and her rural upbringing as a farmer’s daughter.
