Morten Køhlert, Denmark, 2012

15 min.TV seriesChildren's films

One cold January morning the three siblings Donna, age 16 years, Rianne, age 14 and Plet, age11, find their mother lying dead on the kitchen floor with four tickets to Barbados in her hand. The Children decide to keep her Death a secret and put her in the cold pantry. However, keeping up appearances is demanding, particularly when family and friends, neighbours and an increasingly suspicious community try to intrude, all wanting to talk with their Mum. Gradually they discover that Mum had her secrets and there are indications that her chaotic life as Danish pop Singer, Cherry Farmer and Housewife, were just a few sides of a colorful person.

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.
