Special Video Introduction by Director Frederikke Aspöck.

Comedy and tragedy go hand-in-hand in this story about an absurdist power struggle set in a remand penitentiary. While he awaits trial, manipulative celebrity entrepreneur Markus Føns enters custody accused of financial fraud.

However, his imperious attitude doesn’t go over well with the prison staff or the general population. Before long, Markus is requesting voluntary isolation in the ward housing the prison’s most vulnerable inmates, including pedophiles and rapists. As long as isolation ward detainees obey both the written and unwritten rules, they can fill their time in remand limbo with activities such as fitness or handicrafts. But Markus, with his designer wardrobe and expensive lawyer, believes himself a breed apart. He stirs up trouble by challenging the leadership of choir master Niels. Aided by notable production and sound design and a spot-on score, director Frederikke Aspöck achieves a tricky balance of tone and sets a snappy pace. (Alissa Simon)
