This psycho-existential short film penetrates deep into the viewer's subconscious in an attempt to evoke all the basic emotions a human being can experience. An anarchic short

1. Ole Fredrik Wannebo, «Fyr Løs» (fiction)
How is it possible to trust other human beings after being betrayed? Should
you always reply the question "How are you doing?" with "I am fine thank
you"? Should life always be surrounded by a wall of comfort that you can't
seem to get around, that always stand between you and what you want to
achieve, which will stop you from living your life?
2. Mali Finborud Nøren, «Ugla» (documentary)
The documentary Ugla revolves around the youth culture in the suburb of Ugla in Trondheim 1977. At that time there was a very tough environment when it comes to drugs and crime. They were outsiders and punks compared to the preppy kids listening to disco music. The youth club was started to keep the youngsters of Ugla away from the city centre and trouble. From this group of teenagers, two died of heroin overdoses, two are still addicted, two are going in and out of prison, and two have had great success with their music careers. We want to seek out the teenagers from Ugla, over 30 years later, to see what their lives look like today. Who made it and who didn't? What part did the life they lived as teenagers play for how they live today?
3. Jøran Wærdahl, «Sorgenfri» (puppet movie)
During the years the production company Klipp og Lim has worked with the street magazine for homeless people "Sorgenfri", the salespeople have told us many strong and heartbreakingly stories. We want to turn some of these stories in to film. The homeless people will have their own voice, but the stories will be told as a puppet movie.
4. Patrik Andersson & Henrik Evertsson, «Hopp om höjden» (fact/fiction)
A poetic story on the borderline of fact and fiction, biblical quotations and
references from modern science. Simultaneously we want to highlight the countryside
of Jämtland to play an important role in the centre of world politics.
5. Sonja Rapinoja Johansson & Sofia Tedenstad, «Trots alt» (documentary)
In 2012 Sofie got her cancer diagnosed. In January 2013 she got the unexpected message that her cancer never really was a cancer! Cancer is a normal disease today that many people relates to in some way. But it is not normal to be diagnosed with the disease, treated for several months and then learn that there never really was any cancer.
6. Malin Almén, «Därför är jag rädd för varulvar» (animation)
Not a classical werewolf story, but more a story of childhood and youth where the fantasies of werewolves get to symbolise the fear and temptation behind the true forces of reality.
7. Gunnar Jenssen, «Hör mina ord som står raka, hårda»
Håkan Petterson can not talk, walk or eat himself. But this is not a film about a victim. It is a film about Håkan the Poet. For him, poetry comes before anything else.
8. Emil Maxén, «Stor-Jobal»
With black humour we tell the story of the greedy Stor-Jobal who discovers a magical bag and makes a ruthless career on desperate people. But when he tricks the orphan Olle to assist him, a strange friendship occurs, that in the end becomes more important than every penny in the world.
9. Jonathan Norberg, «Hejkomochhjälpmig»
In this 28 minutes long movie we meet Maria, a middle aged woman who is jealous of her daughter Elena. The film is dealing with how to take the next step in life.
