The film was based on Kristian Lundberg’s eponymous novel from 2009. It tells the story of a poet who, sacked from a newspaper for writing a negative review of his own book, is forced to take a job at a local shipyard. This study in human solitude and helplessness is sprinkled with harsh depictions of how national minorities are exploited in contemporary Sweden.
