They struggle to make ends meet and live together in a cramped, plain apartment from which they risk being thrown out. All that reminds them of more glorious and heady times are their luxurious garments and expensive designer items, which they cling on tightly to in order to maintain the facade of their past lives.

In her feature debut, director and screenwriter Amalia Ulman also plays the lead role in this film which explores class differences and consumerism with a distinctive humour, aided by the fact that the mother in the film is played by her actual mother, Ale. Ulman creates a distinguished film using interesting cinematic tools with intriguing effects and transitions, in addition to its experimental use of sound.
