CGiii Comment

A close father-daughter relationship is at risk when Emma’s father, Thomas, comes out of the closet as Agnete and the family splinters. Heart-warming family drama portrayed with convincing authenticity.

11-year-old Emma loves to play football – an interest she has always shared with her dad. When it is suddenly revealed that her parents are getting divorced and her father is going to undergo a transformation, it becomes the beginning of a bewildering, emotional trip for the whole family, where everyone handles it in different ways. Hardest hit is the younger sister, Emma, who thought herself close to her father, but still did not see it coming. In Malou Reymann’s delicate feature film début, which is based on her own experiences, everyone in the family is forced to redefine and put their identities on trial.
