    • Synopsis
    • An adventurous story of friendship between Jonas (11) and his Grandpa. Film talks about distance and split of the family, solitude and consequently alcoholism. The story is told with much consideration for Jonas point of view. At first look his approach seems naive but in fact it´s very straight and critical. He quickly recognizes the inconsistencies of the adult world and doesn´t hesitate to tackle them in his own way. Film, in development, was presented at The Financing Forum in Malmo, Sweden and also it was selected for script workshop Sources2.
