Three true stories – experienced, animated and told by the director, about not coming home safely as a young girl/woman. She is a survivor, she can handle it – but why does she has to? Jessica Laurén started her film career in 1993 and nowadays she runs the company Gold Spoon Pictures together with Jonas Dahlbeck and Boris Nawratil. They are director-designers, and in many cases also the labor as well. They have different specialities and therefore complement each other quite well. For extra work, and upscaled productions, they have a loyal crew of collegues and friends to call. Whilst they enjoy Stockholm, they have filmed and worked in many different countries, and loved it. Nothing is like new places and new people to give you new ideas. New ideas, after all, is what we are all about.
by Astrid Söderberg Sweden
