Overview Solen treffer andre ting enn oss

An intense chamber piece involving four family members on holiday at a Swedish summer house. What are they running away from? What do they want from each other? The cheese in the fridge is mouldy, the bread is dry and the clock on the oven has stopped. The first-person narrator of the novel is constantly alert to her surroundings. Especially when her mother takes her on a nocturnal car trip. She holds the gas pedal down just a little bit too long. What happens when all the rules are revoked?
