Hold My Hand

Lars Kaalund, Denmark, 2022

107 min.DK/Feature

Maja is a controlling and comfort seeking woman with extremely strict routines. She lives a harmonic, suburban life with her husband, teenage son, and a job as a specialist doctor at Skejby Hospital. All of this until one day, her husband suddenly wants a divorce. After a couple of desperate attempts to get him back, Maja realises that she has lost the battle. The comfort-loving Maja must now try to find her feet on wobbly ground in her new and chaotic life which includes an ailing economy, an incomprehensible ex-husband, a young lover, and a teenage son in trouble. The movie is a romantic comedy about all the drama that follows when one is trying to find one’s place in this world, all while trying to unite work, parenting, and love into perfect bliss.
