Anna Emma Haudal
Liv is in her early twenties. She works in her family's garden center in provincial Denmark. She leads a content life with her boyfriend. Surrounded by orchards and a loving family consisting of a dreamy father (Lars Mikkelsen), a caring mother (Sofie Gråbøl, The Killing), her gay brother and his boyfriend.
Totally unprepared, she falls in love with the chaotic but feisty Andrea. Andrea has taken refuge in her uncle's idyllic apple plantation. When Andrea storms into Liv's life, not only her mapped-out life, but also those of her father, her mother and her gay brother are deeply disturbed. Through Andrea, Liv learns that love and family can take many different forms.
This romantic comedy about daring to love yourself and each other is the perfect closing night-film.
