85 min.DK/Feature

When the critically acclaimed actress Thea Barfoed ends her rehab, she confronts a difficult choice. During her heavy drinking period she was divorced and lost custody of her two boys. She now wants her children to be part of her life again. Christian, her ex-husband is quickly pursuaded by her tough manipulative but charming personality. She must prove to herself and to him that she is capable. As Thea is up against the rigorous demands of stage life and a past that haunts her, she must face her inner demons while clinging to the goal she has set for herself.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
