Comment Tempted by a dubious investment offer, father and family man Poul Berg ends up so deep in debt and despair that he takes his own life. Ketty, his widow, struggles to keep the family afloat, pay off her husband’s debt and raise their three children. Those he has left behind are irredeemably marked by his suicide, which ends up costing more than just one human life.

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.
