Cecilie (Sonja Richter) and Joachim (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) are engaged to be married, when tragedy strikes: Joachim is the victim of a car crash that robs him of the use of his legs. While at the hospital tending to Joachim, Cecilie meets Niels (Mads Mikkelsen), a doctor working there. As she leans on him for moral support, she discovers that his wife was responsible for Joachim’s accident. The revelation doesn’t stop their affair, which throws both their lives into upheaval.* (Source: Google)

As part of my Graduate Diploma at AFTRS I filmed one scene of this quirky and very interesting film.  It was filmed in just four hours in studio with professional actors and self edited.

I really enjoyed working with the actors in this film who were fabulous and I think we did a great job together of bringing it to life.
