Adapted from the graphic novel "Never Goodnight" by the director's wife Coco Moodysson, the film takes place in Stockholm in 1982. It portrays the lives of three girls between twelve and thirteen years of age: Bobo, Klara and Hedvig. Ignored by their parents and considered strange by other people, the trio decides to start a punk band (something that only boys are doing at the time) despite agreeing that punk is dead!

Winner: Grand Prix, Tokyo FF (2013); Audience Award, Reykjavik IFF (2013)

Lukas Moodysson makes a sweet, spirited return to form with this utterly delightful evocation of early teenage life.
