CHAINSMOKER

It’s a cold winter night in Berlin when a young woman steps out of the shower and trembles after her package of cigarettes. Empty! Desperate she begins a hunt for cigarettes. But it doesn’t start well. She locks herself out, it starts to rain, and when she finally find a cigarette machine the coin gets stuck in the machine. She goes from there, angry and shaking and partly unknowing of the strange chain of reaction, that she just started.

REAL MEN EAT MEAT

(DEN SOM ÄTER PALSTERNACKOR)

Love at first sight? Not quite. The Mongolian Girl Tsatsa and the Swedish boy Ask are forced by their fathers to spend a day together in Ulan Bator. It starts out badly: A trolley bus breaks down. So does the taxi. The two get lost in a smelly yurt suburb. As the day unfolds, events bring them closer and closer to one another. And finally Ask has to ask her the question that has been hanging in the air: Did you ever kiss a boy?
