Fabian Wullenweber, Denmark, 2019

96 min.DK/FeatureDrama, Comedy

It’s lovely in small town Præstø, especially around Christmas time, but when you are a single mother in a midlife crisis and your 18-year-old son announces he is moving out – suddenly life is hell on earth. At least that is how it feels for Ninna, whose world shatters at the thought of life without her beloved son, Dennis, by her side. In her own peculiar and sometimes quite extreme way, Ninna does everything possible to make Dennis change his mind and move back home, while at the same time and much against her will, she starts to fall in love with her new neighbour, Morten.
