    • Synopsis
    • Karl and his mother is about to learn, when they move from the very fundamentally Christian
      area of Hvide Sande on the west coast of Jutland, to the ethnically (and religiously) mixed area
      of Nørrebro inside Copenhagen.
      Sawsan – a young Islamic girl in Karl’s class – takes him under her caring wings, and tries to
      integrate him into the big city, with all it’s slang and hipness. Sawsan is far more experienced
      and blunt, than you’ll normally see amongst her peers – but also in comparison with this
      young Danish boy from the darkest Jutland.
      That is only until, though, that her big dream comes true, and one of her homemade songs are
      being chosen for the Danish MGP for kids. Her father of course says NO – but Karl has other
      plans..!
