A Holy Mess

MOST SCREENED LOCAL FILM IN SWEDEN 2015!

27 year old Simon and Oscar have been a couple for five years. Together with their close friend Cissi they have bought a house which in the words of the estate agent needs “a little love and care”. The house is in a suburb of Stockholm and the estate agents description was an understatement. Much work has to be done but there was one priority. A nursery, which is already finished – Cissi is in the ninth month. Who is the father? It can be either Oscar or Simon -­‐ and together the three will build a family.It is a secret that they have hesitated to tell their families for nearly one year. But the baby is soon to be born so the secret can be kept no longer. What would be a better time to tell the story than on Christmas Day when all the families are together. A present that nobody is expecting…A HOLY MESS asks the question how tolerant the tolerant Swedes are. A warm comedy on the modern family and their continual struggle to ”do things right”.
