When a power cut strikes a small town in Northern Sweden, a chain reaction begins that sees sparks fly and lives change forever. Electricity allergies, lonely hearts, frustrating IT problems, and the ultimate solution for severe arachnophobia - the feature debut of Oscar®-nominated short director Patrik Eklund is a beautifully absurd, occasionally touching web of comical stories, endearingly brought to life by a charming ensemble cast.
