This film sees children as survivors, courageous in the face of life's bad breaks. Uprooted from a Danish city, Tias, 14, and his kid sister Linda, settle in Sweden where their mother, a perpetual drifter, has decided to give a rural lifestyle a try. The siblings find a new friend in highly musical Tobby, but they also run into enemies and a mysterious neighbor. Is their house maybe haunted?

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.
