Event description

Description

Rickard is a 30-year-old man who, due to his autism and a physical disability, finds it difficult to communicate with others. But he finds comfort by retreating into a rich fantasy world, where his adventures as a giant roaming across a picturesque landscape help him to cope with everyday life, and by competing as his care facility's star player in petanque, a French bowling game. When he's compelled to form his own new team to compete in the Nordic championship, his fantasies and real-life dreams help him to balance his need for both freedom and community.

Directed by Johannes Nyholm (Sweden, 2016). 90 min. In Swedish with English subtitles.
