“With a sensitive attitude and impressive acting, captures…the conditions for a beautiful but problematic mother and daughter relationship” (Nöjesguiden) — On June 22, see the new Swedish drama Psychosis in Stockholm /Psykos i Stockholm (dir. Maria Bäck, Sweden, 2020) at Scandinavia House!
A mother and daughter are on their way to Stockholm to celebrate the daughter’s 14th birthday. When on the train the mother starts behaving strangely, her daughter begins to fear that her mother might be experiencing another psychotic episode. Despite the signs, they try to enjoy their holiday as planned — but when the mother’s condition escalates, the daughter is left on her own in the city, in a heightened drama about a fantastic and unconditional mother-daughter relationship.
