A sleepy Swedish province hopes to lure a discount store chain by hiring a pompous commercial director to document their town's worthiness, but two bright, brash high school girls from immigrant families use their cellphones and selfie sticks to tell the real story. "With its wry humour, warm heart and sharp social observation, the energetic second feature by Gabriela Pichler (Eat Sleep Die) wittily upends clichéd assumptions about both contemporary Sweden and immigrant communities. In the process, it also spins a crafty commentary on the politics of image-making." - VIFF In Swedish, English, Arabic, Tamil, Kurdish, Bosnian, Romanian, German with English subtitles Parental guidance for language and mild violence.
