Hilde Bøe is a drama teacher, leading a seemingly quiet life with her engineer husband and her two-year-old daughter. But in this close cutting and hilarious depiction of a young modern woman, there is a lot going on on the inside. Who am I? Where am I going? Is it my own image of myself, of the pictures other have of me that is the most true?
