Lísa is fifteen years old and lives with her mother in the suburbs in Iceland. She is different from girls her age, but she hasn’t reached puberty. She is isolated and has a big secret about herself. Regular uncomfortable doctors visits and struggling with her self image demonstrates her everyday life. She avoids her peers, especially the girls who she feels very disconnected from. One of these girls is her childhood friend Bryndís, which Lísa has pushed away over the years. When Bryndís is being bullied by some boys in their class Lísa decides to reach back out to her, the two reunite, leading her to tell Bryndís about her secret. Bryndís’s curiosity and bluntness leads Lísa to discover more secrets about her body and even darker about her medical history.
Anna Karín is a twenty five years old filmmaker based in Reykjavík, Iceland. She graduated from the Icelandic Film School from directing and producing department earlier this year. Her graduation film ‘Milli tungls og jarðar’ (English title; Between Earth and the Moon), won the best picture from the semester. She has directed four short films and produced about eight. She is quite new to the film industry but her decision to go to film school two years ago was very spontaneous. Now she works at RÚV, the national television broadcasting station were she is filming, editing, producing and directing material for the younger generation.
